Christmas Supporters newsletter 2018

Dear Supporter

 As 2018 draws to a close it is an opportune time to reflect on how we have done over the year. Thanks to you we can celebrate the fact that we have changed the lives of so many girls and although we could always do more, the impact of what we do is life changing for the girls we help.

With your donation and the help of our partner Zana Africa we have:

•Supported nearly 1650 girls each month with sanitary towels, underwear and related health talks.

•Distributed 40,000 packets of towels and 2500pairs of underwear.

•Given one to one counselling to an average of 25 girls each month with almost 70% being referred on for safeguarding reasons.

Thanks to you these girls can now stay in school and feel confident during their periods. Thanks to you they now have hope for a future which they thought beyond their reach. 

In October, Dave and Lesley visited the project in Kenya and saw first hand the work in action. All the Head Teachers they spoke to, spoke highly of the professionalism of James and the responses to a questionnaire we asked them to compete, gave the project a maximum score of 5 out of 5.

As we approach 2019, we will be faced with challenges to maintain our level of activity as our support from Zana Africa comes to an end. We are looking to secure a replacement to Zana Africa and are hopeful we can do this but nothing is certain yet. Please continue with your support in 2019, we really appreciate it.
