A generous donor to Brighter Brains Institute recently donated enough funds to provide 60 AFRIpads to girls at Garama Secondary Humanist School.
AFRIpads are washable, reusable menstrual sanitary pads. They are very important in keeping girls enrolled in school - many African girls drop out when they reach puberty because they can’t afford disposable pads, and they want to avoid embarrassment at school.
Brighter Brains Institute strives to give AFRIpads to all the girls at its schools.
