Re: Free sanitary towels for girls in Kenya

Dear Maxie,

Thank you very much for your response and for giving us first hand information from the young girls. I am also very happy to read and hear of the positive response from the Kenyan Government about the Ruby Cup.

Looking forward to further progress and all the best in Durban.

Best regards,

Doreen

Re: Two billion Kenya Shillings sought for sanitary towels by the Ministry of Education

Dear Colleagues,

Just keeping you up to date on activities related to Menstrual Hygiene Management in Kenya.

According to todays Daily Nation (dated 06.06.2013), one of the leading newspapers in Kenya, the Ministry of Education wants the Treasury to allocate 2 billion Kenya shillings to buy sanitary towels for girls from poor families in the next financial year. The money will buy sanitary towels to be given for free to more than 2.6 million girls according to proposals presented to the Parliamentary Committee on Education.

Here is the story:
