can wait, education cannot. Join us in our campaign to keep
girls in school in rural arid Kenyan communities.
What we are doing
Working with families and communities
to raise awareness on the negative consequences of not educating girls,
FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) and forced marriages by empowering communities
to speak out and stop these primitive practices.
Campaign for girls rights and decisions that will help shape their lives
and end poverty for generations to come.
Support Girl Child Organisation helps keep the poor disadvantaged girl
child in arid communities in school by providing hygiene solutions like
sanitary towels, panties etc.
Research shows that 70% of girls in arid rural areas dont complete
school and miss on average a week every month while on their menstrual
periods due to lack of sanitary towels. Unsafe abortions, infections,
unwanted pregnancies, FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) are all contributing
factors hence why early key mentoring and education is paramount.
There has been a substantial increase of girls in schools in rural areas
since we started distributing sanitary towels to schools and educating
girls on safe sex practices which has had a remarkable impact on communities
and more so the girl child.
We also sponsor orphaned HIV children in schools.
We also sponsor correctional surgery for women in rural areas suffering
from fistula to enable them to go back to a normal life and become bread
wieners in their families.
