Girl Child!

Inua Dada Foundation envisions a global community that empowers, upholds the dignity and protects the rights of every girl child

We work to identify issues that affects the attendance and performance of primary school girls in Kenya like:-

  • Lack of sanitary towels
  • Suitable sanitation facilities
  • Access to basic health care and support services

We are guided by the principles stated in Articles 1-42 of the United Nations Convention on the rights of the child (UNCRC) including Articles 43-44 (Implementation measures) that outline how governments and organizations serving children should work to ensure that child rights are protected and upheld.

Our Heart Beat

In an effort to address menstrual inequality, one period at a time, Dominika Kulczyk, a Polish philanthropist and founder of the Kulczyk Foundation, searched for the most efficient and cost effective programmes addressing period poverty globally, in her report ‘A Bloody Problem; Period Poverty, Why We Need To End It And How To Do It’.

Inua Dada, alongside 7 other organizations were named, a great fete for many who are working to end period stigma and poverty.

In her research though and to her dismay, she discovered that Menstrual Health and the fight against Period Poverty is hugely underfunded globally.

Stories of hope

Work Her Dream Eldoret

In Coalition with Work Her Dream, we distributed 100 sanitary kits to girls in Kamukunji slum - Eldoret. In this difficult time of #Corona, girls are more vulnerable to abuse and are forced to resort to sex for pads Or use pieces of clothes during menstruating. Most parents in informal settlements, are struggling to put a meal on the table and therefore see menstrual products as a want rather than a need. Statistics show that there will be an increase in cases of teen pregnancies as a secondary result of #COVID19. By providing these essential items for the girls, we believe it will greatly assist them from falling prey to sexual predators in exchange for money, pads or otherwise. Let's support girls to have their periods with dignity!

Inua Dada is now providing dignity kits for girls in Kenya. We select the schools alongside the Ministry of Education, looking at the poverty index and needs of the girls in each school, across counties. While sanitary pads and panties are crucial and truly the most important items, we believe it is also important to provide the girls with a kit that allows them to feel confident and promotes self-worth and a sense of pride in themselves. These items also allow them to feel more comfortable while transitioning through life

Items in the Kit

  • 24 packet of pads
  • 4 pieces of underpants
  • 6 bars of soap
  • 3 tubes of toothpaste
  • 3 toothbrushes
  • 1 pair of slippers
  • 4 rolls of tissue
  • 2 large tins of vaseline
  • Packaging bag

The total cost of 1 kit is Kshs 3,000 or 30 USD

Inua Dada continues to acknowledge the tremendous support received through donations.

The challenges that our girls face daily can only be effectively addressed if we work to strengthen the Foundation’s capacity.

We rely on support from individual well –wishers, private businesses, organizations in the public and private sectors.
