One of our partners in the early years of our work was The Path to Womanhood Foundation. They concentrated their work in Kiserian, where the Maasai live. On several occasions we donated underpants and sanitary pads, and PWF organised menstrual and reproductive health workshops for the women and young girls.
Many young girls don’t realise that menstruation is the portal to pregnancy. If they understood their bodies better, they might feel they had more control over their lives.
Another aim was to encourage them to stay in school and get a proper education, rather than get married early.
