While the Christmas celebrations were somewhat under the shelves this year, “Together for Better” were busy with their project of ensuring dignity of young ladies before the New Year began and before the schools started. Aruna Varsani, the versatile founder of the organization traveled from Nairobi to Marsabit and Wamba having partnered with “Amref Health of Africa in Kenya” and inaugurated Child Protection units on the 21 st of December 2020. “We distributed 500 reusable sanitary pads kits and 300 reusable face masks in Wamba as the girls are now getting ready to go back to school in January”, said Aruna further adding that it was very strange that there was lack of information in the region about face masks. “I found myself educating them about the reason being their own safety and of others and why it is necessary to wear the face masks as they return to school” added Varsani. She is thankful to the friends, partners and collaborators of her organization that made it possible to reach out and distribute the necessities in several schools and homes in the area and brought Xmas smiles for young ladies in Masai Land. The sanitary kits donation does not just begin and end with the donation but involves providing employment and training ladies in manufacturing of the reusable pads, ensuring quality as well as educating the recipients about their personal health and hygiene and Aruna has perfected herself with this over the years as one of her projects besides accommodating mini libraries in areas of need and helping procure the internet bundles for several students during this hard hitting pandemic period.
