Its cool to give back, we’re working with our favourite charity For the Love of Girls:
For each purchase from The Cut, we will be donating a portion of to them.
For the Love of Girls is a Kenyan based registered nonprofit, that aims to break cultural constraints that disproportionately disadvantage women. One of the biggest of which being inadequate access to menstrual products. Women and girls should have autonomy over their bodies without having to rely on anyone for access to menstrual products, this should not be a privilege but a right.
60% of women and girls in Kenya cannot afford menstrual products and often result in harmful homemade alternatives or engage in transactional sex to receive pads; with 2/3 women in Kenya receiving pads from sexual partners, and 10% of girls missing school every month- this is a crisis. All girls deserve dignity.
The organization's primary focus, therefore, is fighting for menstrual equity through the distribution of longterm and sustainable reusable menstrual products that offer the women a reliable and longterm solution to menstrual health management. Reusable products are sustainable in more ways than one- being better for women, better for their pockets and better for the environment.
For the Love of Girls has managed to collect enough reusable pads for over 500 girls and have so far distributed to girls in Gachie (Kiambu), Changamwe (Mombasa), Garsen (Tana River County), and to girls from two different schools in Mandera. "With the contributions we have received we are so grateful that these girls will now be able to effectively manage their period for years to come."
