The Kibagare Girls Football team is a group of girls from the Kibagare Slum in Nairobi. The team was formed to give the girls positive non-formal education. Being from disadvantaged backgrounds, the girls’ families are unable to buy sanitary towels for them. As a result, the girls have to use unsanitary materials which may also cause embarrassment e.g. pieces of old cloth and mattresses
SI Milimani established that the girls football team that plays at the Shangilia Youth Centre which was established by DSW are in need reusable sanitary towels, panties and soap. SI Witten-Rhur supported the project financially by giving a contribution of sh.63,000 towards sanitary towels for needy girls. The girls were trained on the proper usage of the sanitary towels by ICare (the supplier). DSW also provided them with educative materials on responsible living for the youth.
The girls are now able to consistently play on the team and do not have to miss this important part of their lives during menstruation.
