UNESCO estimates that 1 in 10 school-age girls on the African continent do not attend school during menstruation.
In rural Western Kenya, 2/3 of girls and young women aged 13–29 using sanitary pads reported receiving them from sexual partners. School girls, particularly a concentration of 15-year-old girls, reported exchanging sex for money to purchase pads
Research in Kenya revealed that 65% of women and girls can’t afford sanitary napkins.
