Zana Africa is a program in Kenya that provides sanitary pads for young women. Monthly, girls miss school due to the embarrassment brought upon by their period. Unlike in America, talking about issues involving periods is looked down upon, so girls are being alienated for something they have no power over. These girls inevitably miss so much school, due to the lack of sanitary supplies that they’ll eventually drop out of school. Yearly, thousands of girls miss out on an education. Naturally, as Miss Hall’s girls, we decided to pair up with Zana Africa and partake on this project. We have created a group called, Waza LADIEZ. Waza means“to believe” in Swahili, and LADIEZ is an acronym for Learning And Discussing Issues and Essentials with Zana. This group will converse with girls in the Zana Africa program about issues that teenage girls typically face. Ranging from talks about periods to cultural issues, we will act as allies to them. We have sought out group members from both the junior and the senior class. We discussed the expectations and what being apart of the group will entail, and then we passed out applications to girls who were interested. Two weeks ago, we received a sufficient amount of applications and after much discussion about each and every girl who submitted, we picked a tremendous group of girls.
