Thanks to the very generous donation of £3000 from “World Day of Prayer” we have been able to engage with Manyatta Primary School.
This school is located in the Manyatta informal settlement (slum) area of Kisumu. It has nearly 3000 students with over 200 girls in the eight classes of Year 6. This has presented us with the challenge of how we can help so many girls in one school. The vast majority of the girls come from very poor families and the support we give them through the provision of sanitary towels, health education and counselling, is life changing, giving the girls opportunities that they would not otherwise have to perform on an equal footing with the boys.
