Kenya: Girls to Get Reusable Sanitary Towels

40 thousand girls in Kayole will today receive reusable sanitary towels from PATH international. Reports indicate that many school going girls drop out of school during their menstrual cycles because they can't afford sanitary towels. The initiative aims to keep some of these girls in school.
