60% of Kenyan women don't have access to period protection. This is particularly alarming in areas where many girls are orphaned due to HIV/AIDS. So I started a project at Destiny school in Mathare, near Nairobi, with the objective to set up a waps production by and for the girls there. To get an insight in their reality and understand the context of the project, here's a video from May 2014. A big thanks to Christina Wilson who enabled this project and who produced the movie!
8 months after starting the cooperation with Destiny school in the Mathare slum outside Nairobi, Kenya, it turns out the waps are a powerful lever for girls' education. With the waps, the girls can go to school like the boys, every day of the month! Watch the video here:
