Hilda Cheruto is a student at Hearnscentre training in dressmaking. Every month she could miss classes and only had to fake illness in order to be away. She is an orphan and her aunty could not care buying her any sanitary towels. She used to hide some pieces of clothes remains to use as towels while at home. Nobody knew about it until one day when her cycle changed. Her periods came while she was at school and when I offered her a sanitary pad she did not even know what it was for. I had to explain to her how it was used. Unfortunately the pad did not help her in the long tern because I can’t provide my student in the long run. It was during this time that Kara visited our school and taught the girls how to make reusable pads. Hilda was the first beneficiary. We made eight pads for her since that day she is excelling in her studies and has never missed class again. She is so grateful for love binti an organization, which is putting smiles, and hope on girls’ faces. She said “those sanitary towels that I have raised my self-esteem ".
