Our charity Hope for Excel and Porridge and Rice, are fighting to remove the gender imbalance that exists in Kenyan society. Many girls and women still lack access to basic services, and women remain under-represented in making decisions that directly affect their lives. Education plays a huge role in ensuring that girls are provided with the same equal opportunities as boys.
Young women are missing out on their education, due to being unable to afford efficient sanitary protection. This is a huge problem. No girl should have to fall behind in class due to this issue. A lack of sanitary pads has led to an estimated one million girls missing school every month.
Porridge and Rice provide sanitary protection for all menstruating school students and female teachers. Better education about menstruating is essential. There are still accounts of “Period Shaming” girls going to school on their periods unfortunately brings the unwarranted teasing and bullying from boys, another reason as to why female students are missing out on school. It is vital that education on menstruation is taught to both girls and boys.
FGM and Discrimination
The division between women and men in Kenyan society is still apparent.
Children should be taught the importance of equality and valuing someone’s character. Porridge and Rice operates a “no discrimination policy” where discrimination on any grounds is not permitted in their partner schools.
Many girls are still being subjected to the illegal practice of FGM (female genital mutilation). There is still a strong social pressure for girls to undergo circumcision and today a girl is still considered to be unclean if they do not go under the procedure. It is a highly traumatic and painful experience that is still taboo in Kenyan culture to discuss.
Porridge and Rice’s partner school, Compassion CBO runs an anti-FGM programme, which the charity fully endorses. They work to end gender based violence, empower women economically and socially and enable them to live responsible and fulfilled lives.
Porridge and Rice have also put in place a child protection policy, which includes no discrimination and no corporal punishment (as required by UK law).
Child marriage has been illegal since 2001, but still continues in Kenyan society at 23%.
Due to COVID-19, many girls were cut from support systems aiming to protect them. Dorkus Parit from Hope Beyond Kenya stated that “because of COVID-19 the safety net that schools were providing for many girls was removed leaving them at risk of child marriage”.
Porridge and Rice ensure that if a girl leaves school because she has been subjected to FGM and been married, her brothers are excluded from school.
How can you help?
If you’re asking yourself, “What can I do to help?” you can make such a big impact just by raising awareness of the issues that women still face in Kenyan society. Whether it be through social media, starting a conversation with a family member or friend, and sharing this page is always a great way to start. If you would like to donate there is a section on the Hope for Excel website for more information.
People literally block you when you try your best to approach them with kindness and understanding as much as they block you when you beat them over the head with violence. 🤷🏼♀️ Okay, then. The sadistic methods of government and authority apparently feel more relishing and comforting to those people.
It's not a great feeling to me personally but everyone is free to experience as they please, if they need more of that, so be it. If they need less communication and compassion and connection, so be it. You can certainly walk down that path, eventually it will lead to awareness. But don't rely on the people you treat like utter shit to pull you out of the dumpster once mommy and daddy government have disposed of you and called you worthless, when you have no money, no autonomy, no direction, no safety, no food and no support. You do eventually rely on the charitableness of others. Let's hope they will be kind when you deserve it the least.
Covid-19 left serious sequelae in Uncle Mauricio's lungs that prevent him from breathing normally. In the first examinations Severe Pulmonary Fibrosis is evident.
In addition to all the necessary medicines and care, Uncle Mauricio is constantly requiring oxygen at a high volume. We do not know for how long. The expenses have been substantial. Family members who have been able have made great efforts to provide the necessary financial assistance without having to bother anyone, but it soon reaches the point where expenses become unbearable for us. That is why we appeal to your charity so that we can continue to keep Uncle Mauricio alive.
