Hi everyone,

My name is Grace Wanene, I live in Laikipia County, Kenya. I am passionate about women empowerment and transformative community change.

The Drawing Dreams Initiative

I founded Drawing Dreams Initiative to work towards these goals and transform our community in Laikipia County, Kenya. We work in schools and communities on matters menstrual health management- Education, community sensitization and access.

We began doing community visits since schools are closed

Since the schools got shut down, we could no longer continue with our schools programs, we began a village to village menstrual health drive, household to household, reaching 12 villages and 800+ girls.

THE CHALLENGES: he increasing number of teenage mothers from vulnerable groups

It is during these visits that we noticed the increasing number of teenage mothers from needy and vulnerable backgrounds. Before and amidst COVID-19, these young mothers cannot afford meals for themselves and their babies. Sanitary towels are becoming a luxury hence they result to un-hygienic ways of managing their menses. Some engage in sex for sanitary towels and basic needs for their babies.

They have all not completed their secondary level of education. This limits their potential in so many ways.

YOUR SUPPORT: a mini resource center for teenage mothers

I really need your support to facilitate a mini resource centre with tailoring equipment for 15 teenage mothers. This will facilitate sewing, designing, tailoring for the community including their own reusable sanitary towels which will be effective during their periods, incase they cannot afford sanitary pads. With time, this project will be income bringing for them and could facilitate their education in a local day-secondary school.

THE BUDGET

For $1,500: 5 Sewing Machines ($150x5 = $750); 3 Solar Panels ($130x3=$390); Running Cost ($360).

Please support us!

Your love and support will bring these young mothers a step closer to the future they once hoped for. They will become self reliant and have a livelihood for their babies.

Thank you for support.

Lets transform our community together,

Grace Wanene.
