Successful Distribution of Sanitary Pads

Alfred Yambo is for empowering women.

The primary and secondary schools at Ndhiwa Constituency have for a while hosted the poor and vulnerable girls. These have had an unfair schooling opportunity compared to those from rich families.

Alfred Yambo has championed the empowering of girls and women in Ndhiwa.
We have championed the empowering of girls and women in Ndhiwa.

Among the challenges that they have encountered have included a lack of access to sanitary pads. The female students who need them have therefore resorted to prostitution and seeking out of sponsors in order to access the precious sanitary pads. In the process, they have fallen into early pregnancies, emotional turmoil when stigmatized and a dropping out of school. They have been denied their childhoods through having to seek out jobs prematurely when they should have been in school.

Therefore, this sad state of affairs inspired us to donate free sanitary pads to 26 primary and 4 secondary schools at Ndhiwa Constituency through the Henry’s Care Initiative Project. A good 400 girls were reached through this project. This project was initiated in Ndhiwa in 2018 and has been running up to date. In the wake of COVID-19, it has also been distributing PPEs , masks and sanitizers alongside soap and clean water tanks to help fight COVID-19.

Being a leader, Alfred Yambo understands the importance of serving the community in order to protect the little girls from such harm. Such harm as early pregnancies and inaccessibility to proper healthcare for the poor and vulnerable has inspired a continuous effort to take care of the girls in Ndhiwa. It is our ultimate dream to serve even more youth and old alike in Ndhiwa.

“Helping one person is helping an individual but helping a community, is helping a whole nation”.

Alfred Yambo.

We have a leadership that stands for the girls. It is also there for the men and boys. We need girls mentally settled and schooling so that they can create better societies for tomorrow.
