Help our girls in Mtwapa (Kenya)

We are helping a small group of children in and around Mtwapa (Kenya) with their education. Disadvantaged children, especially girls, who otherwise would not be able to attend school.

 

We have deliberately chosen to help each child on an individual base. When the child still goes to primary school, the parents are responsible and when the child is ready for it, the child can take its own responsibility for his or her education. We consider it of importance that people learn to take responsibility for their own lives.

Maternity Law

You cannot imagine here in the Netherlands, but in Kenya they have a 'Maternity Law'. The reason is that one million girls in Kenya cannot go to school if they are menstruating simply because their family cannot afford a sanitary napkin. They stay at home now and miss about six weeks of education every year. The consequences of this can be very large, such as leaving school completely. Here in the Netherlands you cannot imagine that. Our foundation has always made sure that our pupils were able to buy sanitary napkins in order to prevent school absenteeism. (click here for the full article of World's Best News)

Practical support in Kenya is given by two local fieldassistants Mose and Anna). This construction makes it possible to keep remote control and still provide adequate support within the framework of the objectives of the foundation.

 

The reason we mainly support girls has to do with the Kenyan culture and the related practice. In short, you could say that boys have the longest school time and girls have to provide the income later. Not really an ideal situation.
