Friends of Londiani (FOL) in partnership with Girl Guide and Girl Scout Leaders from around the world are working with schools and communities in the Districts of Londiani and Kipkelion to enable girls to remain in school. Girls often miss days of school due to lack of access to affordable sanitary products, and lack of sanitation facilities in schools. The community has identified that its lack of ability to address this simple issue leads to girls leaving school at an early age (at a disproportionate rate than boys) and leaves girls without skills necessary to participate in money-earning activities later in life, and unable to make informed decisions about their future. The Girls for Girls Programme includes a menstrual health hygiene education programme.
