The World Bank and many other N.G.Os have conducted researches that show that up to 60% of the school going girls in Kenya miss school each month due to challenges ingrained in their menstrual cycle. Most girls often lack access to proper facilities such as sanitary pads, changing dresses, washrooms, water and soap to support them move through the menstrual cycle with minimal disruption to their studies, thus poor menstrual hygiene management is among the greatest obstacles to girls’ school attendance and retention affecting their performance and at times  leads  to drop out. Yet the issue has not been given due attention because the topic is surrounded by taboos and myths, making a dignified and natural event something to be ashamed of.
