Nyamira Teachers have been warned against selling free sanitary towels given by well wishers to school girls.
Speaking in Nyamira during the launch of free sanitary pads program to school girls on Saturday, Nyamira women representative Jerusa Mose has said teachers who will attempt will be fully dealt with.
“This program is meant to help girl child pursue her education freely. The pads are freely given. A serious action will be taken against any teacher who will be caught selling them,” Warned Jerusa.
The aim of the woman rep is meant to erase embarrassment from young girls especially the needy students who cant afford this basic need.
According to her, Many school girls boycott lessons and others stay at home because they cant withhold the embarrassment caused during their menstrual period.
