1.Reusable Sanitary Towels, a project of Arise Hellen Wafula CBO
Educating girls and women about the “hygienic” use of washable sanitary towels. Washable sanitary pads are more durable than disposable sanitary pads and easy for one to make.
The aim is to teach local women and men through a short course how to make washable sanitary towels themselves with the right materials. The washable sanitary napkin contributes to a sustainable solution to the monthly recurring problem for girls who do not have sufficient resources to buy sanitary towels themselves. Because the washable sanitary napkin can be used for a long time, it contributes to less waste and is therefore better for the environment.
Washable sanitary pad making course, taught by Jenny Zondag (ETK) in collaboration with Arise Hellen Wafula CBO in Mathare Nairobi. Here are some photos:
2.Arombe Medical Centre, a project of Pundo C.B.O
The project got started in 2019 and now ready for use .It was opened on 13th August 2021 by the embassy of the Netherlands to Kenya.
It is an unprecedented time in which we live all over the world. Jobs have been lost and companies have gone bankrupt.
People could no longer go to work, schools were closed and remained closed for the rest of the year. Thanks to donations, we have been able to support the vulnerable in society during the pandemic by distributing food packages and hygiene products.
