What we do

Sage in Kenya is a registered UK charity with a specific aim of keeping girls from poor areas of Kisumu and Busia in Kenya, in school during their periods by raising funds to supply sanitary towels and underwear, thus helping them reach their full potential.

In 2014 we were actively engaged with 12 schools across the region, supporting over 600 girls. Our key worker in Kenya visits the schools monthly to distribute these sanitary towels and underwear, to each girl individually and to implement a structured teaching programme which engages the girls on their personal development and future health and well-being.

Sage in Kenya is supported in Kenya by our Non Governmental Organisation registered with the Kenyan authorities – Supporting Girls in Education. The NGO is our delivery arm on the ground in Kenya and critical for success.

“The lack of sanitary protection during menstruation is often mentioned by girls as a barrier to their regular attendance at school.” - UNICEF 2009
