No girl should miss a school day because of her period

I am running a project in Kenya, to try and make sure that no girl misses a single day of school, because she is having her period. Somehow it's kind of embarrassing for some people to talk about menstruation. Even though every girl in the world have to endure her period once every month, and it's makes the world go round…. no period - no more babies in the world, it's really as simple as that and a very natural thing. But in Kenya, and in other places girls are missing out on education and school, when they are having their period, which is so wrong. They don't have the necessary pads and educational material available - and I am on a mission to change that. For the girls we have made a small educational booklet (My First Period) that we want to distribute with #safepadTM - the reusable and washable pad, that can change these girls world and opportunities. The girls in Kenya have internet, but in rural areas they can't download our new informative booklet; My first Period - so we need funding to print the booklet, and distribute them in these areas. We will make an online version free for download but need a printed version in Kenya for the girls.

Please help me to support the girls.

Hi Trine. This product is amazing. Is it eco-friendly, too, I hope? I wish every girl that is in need on the planet had access to these. How much are they? I've shared your fundraiser on my FB and Twitter pages. Good luck to you, and please keep us posted on your progress.
