This program began in response to previous volunteers at schools taking notice of young women missing up to a week of class each month due to a lack of sanitary supplies. Further inquiries revealed a general lack of knowledge and misunderstanding of the natural process within their bodies: young women, many without proper sex education being giving at home, choose to take council from their peers, often resulting in unplanned pregnancies and/or the contraction of STD’s.

The women’s education volunteer program has been established by past volunteers and local staff to provide a safe environment in which young women may be able to receive correct sex education and counselling. The program will focus on HIV/Aids education, sex education and general health classes and providing supplies to women in schools and institutions within the greater Nairobi region who otherwise would not be able to access this. 

This program operates only on Saturdays. During the week the volunteer teaches standard curriculum at schools or works at an orphanage. As this program grows and if the volunteer has a strong background in this area there may be the possibility of arranging the women program to also run during the week.
