Welcome and thank you for visiting our website to learn more about Inua Dada Foundation.
It has always been a dream of mine to see other women succeed and this can only be achieved when we as a global community invest in empowering our girls and advocating for the protection of their rights.
On 26thAugust 2013, Kenya’s Citizen Television aired an emotive feature titled “Period of Shame”.
The feature highlighted the plight of primary school girls in Labos Primary School, Marigat District, Baringo County, Kenya who have no access to sanitary towels and result to using rags and chicken feathers during their monthly period.
Viewer reaction was immediate and soon it become clear that something needed to be done to ensure that our girls were not missing classes due to lack of sanitary towels.
As a result I was motivated to setup Inua Dada initiative campaign to address this issue in a collaborative effort with Royal Media Services.
The public contributed generously towards Inua Dada initiative campaign effort and on 7th November 2013 the First Lady of Kenya Her Excellency Margaret Kenyatta successfully launched the Inua Dada Sanitary Towel distribution drive at Labos Primary School.
Since the launch I have continued to use my platform as a News Anchor and Reporter to voice the issues that still continue to hinder learning and development of our girls.
