Menstrual Hygiene Book

Through our efforts to distribute sanitary pads, we realized that menstruation is a taboo subject and most girls grow up without the correct information regarding their bodies.

The book is recommended for school girls between the ages of 8 -15years, their teachers, parents and guardians. It is published by the Kenya Literature bureau.
