We are hosting a concert and workshops for Menstrual Hygiene Day. A group of Kenyan artists have commissioned a song for us, and we will launch this on the day. We are expecting students from 62 schools and representatives of all communities in Kipkelion East and West to attend. We are looking forward to a great day!
We also have an ongoing online event to raise funds and awareness around menstrual health. Check out our website link below.
“Our #NothingWillStopMe campaign enabled us to advocate on behalf of girls and women as well as raising funds to end period poverty in Kenya. We worked in partnership with local committees, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education. On MH Day we celebrated with 2,500 people including 63 schools, communities, partners and community leaders. To top off a brilliant month of campaigning and action, we were proud to launch our campaign song created by Suzanne Gachukia-Opembe, an established music artist and producer in Kenya. The song is a clear message to women and girls, that nothing should stop them achieving their dreams. The song supports the aims of the menstrual hygiene campaign, but also the values and beliefs of Brighter Communities Worldwide and our work here in Kenya – to empower communities to achieve a brighter future. The words inspired us to believe in our dreams, and to believe that we can be all that we can be. This song has the potential to empower communities across Kenya and beyond.
