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!
