KEEPING OUR YOUNG WOMEN IN SCHOOL

  1. Lack of sanitary pads

  2. Lack of person understanding about puberty and menstruation

  3. Cultural perceptions about menstruation

GSP Treatment Program - drinking water and toilets

good education outcomes need healthy children and teachers

Basic health issues are a real challenge when drinking water is contaminated or ablution facilities are unsanitary. We know that by providing clean water and enabling hygienic toilet facilities we reduce absenteeism due to illness (such as gastro, skin and eye disease) by 72%.

Urgent - funds needed

The Treatment Program is currently unfunded and has had to be ceased. This means an increase in disease and the consequent absence from school for many children.

Kenyan curriculum changes means new text books required

The 2018 curriculum change in Kenya has meant that every school needs new text books and teacher’s guides. The new curriculum launched affecting students up to Year 3 and now adds on a Year level each calendar year until all class levels are teaching the new curriculum.

Help us give our children the right text books

This means GSP has a target of providing text books to each new class level until 2023.

It also means new sets of text books for new schools as they are partnered. Donate now
