Millennium Fellowship Project: Ladies in Red
In light of the recent suicides that came about because of the stigma attached to menstruation, Millennium Fellows at Strathmore University launched an initiative that focuses on eradicating this stigma, called Ladies in Red. Ladies In Red aims to provide education on menstrual health to school girls and women from less fortunate backgrounds. Menstrual health remains a big problem in Kenya today as it is not something that is discussed often. In addition to holding workshops in various underprivileged areas concerning to destigmatize menstruation and puberty in our community, we will fundraise for the distribution of menstrual cups and reusable pads, and hold a red-themed vigil for those who have lost their lives. Our goal is to positively impact the lives of at least 1,000 people.
