SANITATION AND MENSTRUAL HEALTH
The lack of access to sanitary pads for a majority of the young females in Zimbabwe has led to them resorting to unhygienic alternatives such as rags, tissues and newspapers. For young girls in school, attendance school tends to fall during menstruation which in turn affects their education which they need to build a solid foundation for a better future.
The cost of sanitary pads is between $5USD to $10USD per pack. For poor families, this price is unaffordable.
K.U.K Alliance has taken the initiative to focus on supporting young girls and women on the challenges they face during menstruation by raising awareness and looking for sustainable alternatives that can be used.
