Around one million girls in Kenya miss some of their education each month because of a lack of sanitary products.

Worse still, 25% of girls drop out of school altogether by the time they reach puberty.

At our partner schools in Nakuru, around 35% of girls miss school each month because of their period, and 65% are forced to use old clothing instead of sanitary pads. We want to change this, so that every girl we support can reach their full potential. 

We’re running a pilot scheme with 90 girls aged 12-15 at one of our partner schools in Kenya to eliminate period poverty and provide equitable access to education – but we need your help.

66 %

165
learning days lost during high school because of menstruation
The Good Period

This is just the beginning...

We’re aiming to raise the money needed to provide our group of 90 girls with enough sanitary pads each month, so that they can take advantage of every educational opportunity that comes their way. 

And this is just the start – we plan to roll this scheme out to our other partner schools, so that every girl we support can enjoy their education to the full.

£90 a month would provide every girl in our focus group with enough sanitary pads every month, helping to dramatically reduce absences from school.

"All girls be strong and never give up!" - Mackline, aged 14

Mackline attends the partner school in Kenya where we’re conducting our pilot programme. Two out of three girls at Mackline’s school can’t afford sanitary pads to help manage their periods, but Mackline doesn’t want menstruation to be an obstacle in her education. 

In fact, in a survey of the group of girls we’re working with in Kenya, every girl we asked said they don’t have access to everything they need to manage their periods, such as underwear and sanitary pads. Only one girl said she felt comfortable and confident managing menstruation at school.

It costs just £1 to provide one girl with enough sanitary pads for one month, so any amount you can donate really will make a difference.

Gift Aid Declaration

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows African Adventures Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to African Adventures Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the “Yes” box, I agree I would like African Adventures to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that African Adventures will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give. I understand that African Adventures Foundation will use the Gift Aid claimed on my donation for unrestricted purposes and permit them to do so.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When African Adventures receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we’re entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
