Data from the Kenya Ministry of Education revealed that girls from poor families’ miss 20% of school days in a year due to a lack of sanitary towels. The data indicates that a girl in primary school in between classes 6 and 8 can lose up to 18 weeks out of 108 weeks while those in high school can lose almost 24 weeks out of 144 weeks of learning.
