Did you know that for many girls in Kenya, sanitary pads are an unaffordable luxury?
Many girls miss many days of school because without pads, their monthly periods immobilise them. Others resort to recycling disposable pads or using handkerchiefs, or tissues or pieces of mattress.
As if this is not bad enough,even where they can get their hands on disposable pads, some girls do not have panties to hold the pads in place!
With availability of sanitary pads and panties, young girls all over Kenya can attend school every day and restore their dignity.
Through the Great PnP Blast Concert in Nairobi, sanitary pads will be collected to match the panties. The event will be held at Alliance Francaise on Friday, 30th September, 2011 from 7pm.
Iddi Achieng will perform at this concert. There will also be performances from Makadem, Asali, Judith Bwire, and Kevo among others. The event will be MC’eed by Phelix Odiwuor (Jalang’o) and Jacquey Nyaminde (Wilbroda).
All you have to do to support this cause is show up with a pack of pads and enjoy great music! You can also buy pads and panties at the door.
