PE kit and underwear

In August, a quantity of PE kit donated by Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Newcastle upon Tyne, was delivered to Enkiteng Lepa School, Maji Moto, Kenya, along with underwear donated by Fab 50s Keep Fit Group in Ponteland.

The underwear is very important, particularly knickers as they are needed to hold reusable sanitary pads in place. Mbita Primary School are very grateful to the Crafty Reivers of Stamfordham for making a quantity of reusable pads and bags to hold them. Without proper protection, girls will not go to school during their menstrual cycle, potentially missing one week of school in four.
