Reproductive Health in Kenya
Bringing Reproductive Health to Kajiado County and Munga Village
The Teti Project strives to improve the state of Sexual and Reproductive Health in Kenyan schools. This goal is accomplished only through providing the necessary resources to ensure young girls become comfortable with women's hygiene and no longer feel excluded due to their periods.
This summer, the Teti Project team is traveling to Munga County and Kajiado, partnering with three different schools, Munga Primary, Munga High School, and Baraka High School in Kajiado, to provide girls with women's hygiene kits. These kits last for three to four years and are purchased through Days For Girls Kenya.
We will be providing two hundred and fifty Smart Starter kits, purchased through Days For Girls Kenya, and will be engaging students through in-depth lessons on Sexual and Reproductive Health. Our time at each school will be focused on helping young women feel more comfortable with topics concerning their bodies and building trust with each community to ensure we create spaces that foster discourse.
We ultimately hope to de-stigmatize the conversation around sexual and reproductive health. As well as making sure menstrual cycles do not prohibit girls in Kenya from access to educational spaces.
