KURA and Lunapads are pleased to announce a collaborative project to provide menstrual pads kits to 2000 girls in Northern Kenya!
Since 2002, Lunapads has been operating Pads4Girls, a social program which seeks to address the problem that hundreds of millions of girls and women in developing nations face: missing school or work for several days every month because they lack adequate means to manage their periods. Providing girls with sustainable menstrual supplies is a simple yet highly effective way to give them a chance for a better future. Learn About Pads4Girls here.
In 2013, KURA supplied over 500 girls and their mothers in Northern Kenya with cloth pad kits made by AFRIpads kits. Shortly thereafter, KURA approached Lunapads for their support to provide 1000 girls with pad kits and they generously said YES! Now, we need your help to fund the next 1000 kits and reach our goal of 2000 girls.
By donating to the Lunapads Global Opportunity Fund at Tides Canada you can make a direct contribution to support the KURA 2000 Project. (Note: donations from Canada > $25 are eligible for a tax receipt. For US donors, donations greater than US$1,000 are eligible for a tax receipt. Please contact us via email to make arrangements if you require a US tax receipt.) The site link for donations is here (where you need to also click the green "donate online" button)
You can also support this initiative by shopping online at www.lunapads.com. Through their innovative One4Her program, for every pad sold online, Lunapads will donate a pad to a girl in East Africa. If you use the promotion code KURA14 at check out, not only will you be eligible to save 10% off your order, but Lunapads will double the “pad for pad” donation and designate it to KURA on those orders. Thank you for your generous support!
