We care about children in Kenyan slums to give them an education and life chances

Charity Registration No. 1139880

Story

In Kenya, up to 65% of women cannot afford sanitary care. The girls at the Brainhouse Academy in Mathare North (one of the world's largest slums) are no exception. When money is so tight that you can barely afford food, sanitary products are not considered a necessity. This means that the girls are forced to use old rags, paper, or even skip school entirely whilst they're on their period. 

Access to sanitary products should be a basic human right, but until it is, ACEF is running a Girls Health and Empowerment program, making it one of their goals for the next year to ensure that all girls at Brainhouse Academy are provided with sanitary care. 

Before we go back out to Kenya in March 2018, the charity are hoping to raise £4,500 to provide each girl at the school with reusable sanitary towels or menstrual cups, along with training in sexual health education. 

To help raise these funds, ACEF is running a campaign called 'Dine for Dignity' to help bring dignity to the children of Brainhouse Academy - £5 will pay for a girl to have a fem-kit (containing reusable sanitary towels) which will last her a year, £12 will buy a girl a menstrual cup which will last up to 10 years.

We are looking for volunteers/fundraisers to help the girls at Brainhouse Academy by hosting dinner parties, afternoon teas, bake sales or even 'Come Dine with Me'-style events. 

Please donate any funds raised through this page with a comment on what you did - we'd love to hear your stories!

Thank you everyone for your support!
