Sustainability Initiatives in Nanyuki-Laikipia
Keep Her in School
Today, many girls in low-income areas, especially in rural parts of the country, face psychological and practical challenges to managing menstrual health as they have limited resources and access to sanitary products. Through our Keep Her in School Initiative, girls in 5 schools in the Nanyuki area, namely, Kalalu primary, Ndemu primary, Umande primary, Gakeu primary, and Kalalu secondary, have benefitted from a supply of sanitary towels. The beneficiaries are girls from class six to eight in the four primary schools, which serve as feeder schools to the secondary school in the area, and girls from form one to four girls in the secondary school. This initiative ensures that no girl misses classes due to a lack of sanitary towels. Over the past four years, we have noticed a trend where the girls have performed better than the boys.
We also organize health and hygiene talks in the mentioned schools to provide reliable information that prepares them for a safe and fulfilling life as they transition to adulthood.
Conservation school trips
This year we have introduced the mentioned schools to The William Holden Wildlife Foundation Education Center, which offers students a unique opportunity to experience the outdoors in a rare communication with nature often unavailable to them in their environment.
To date, two schools have managed to visit the centre, where they engaged in on-site demonstrations, lectures, and programs on the importance of conservation.
