We recently heard from Ms. Betty Olet from the Lango Development Forum, who will assist in the delivery of pads and workshops at Akiya Primary School. Betty just visited Akiya and here is what she reported back:
I am so happy to learn that you are joining hands with Juliet to raise funds for the girl child in our home area. The project you have chosen is a very good one and I can assure you that the need is great. In an hour long interaction with the students, I got first hand information on how difficult their situation is…
I would like to appreciate what you are intending to do to improve the lives of these young girls. They were so excited about the prospect of receiving sanitary pads and panties. These are items we never imagine living without but these girls go without them and this usually puts their lives on hold for the duration of the period. I pray that you will one day visit the school to comprehend the magnitude of what you are doing for them… May all that you wish for come true and May the Lord bless your efforts…
Thank you, Betty, for your dedication to this project. Please lend your support today!
