all of africa and just to be clear, what we're talking about. this is what we mean. hearing kenya, a packet of 14 retails for anywhere between a $13250.00 shillings. that's just under 3 years. and the woman may need anywhere between $10.00 to $15.00 of these, depending on how heavy her flow is in a month, there are of course alternatives, including the almighty company as electrical it slightly more expensive of cost. there are also more affordable options. we're talking about the menstrual cup or even reusable sanitary pads, which can be washed, and that use a squarely here to a ruby where we meet the roof aiden, who is raising awareness on how to create access to the sanitary towers for women and girls, such as the ones we just saw in kenya, it's 2 thirds of women unable to afford menstrual products. 2 thirds. ready of women receive mental products from sexual partners. 1.2000000 girls miss school because they don't have to manage that period claims period. i. then this is where
6:46 am
i call home. i grew up in a row be last 18 years old. and then i traveled to the u. k. for my undergraduate degree. i was contemplating coming back home for a long time because i was away for almost 8 years. i got the independence that i was looking for living abroad, going to school, figuring out life in who i am. but i got to a point where for me i just could never see myself living that long down. it never really felt like home. why for the long girls it's all started halfway through 2019. it was a lot to do with cost of menstrual products, even as university students living abroad. it was very expensive to buy material products and also the environmental impact that single use product tab. when the environment, when my sister and i 1st decided that this was what we're going to do,
6:47 am
i was too scared to tell anybody. i didn't want people telling me no, don't do it. all people are going to say how you talking about period. my sister broke the news list. i gave it to her. after that it was a lot of support very quickly, especially because while the community people do not talk about periods, is a conversation that was not unfamiliar to people in my family. the only thing was my grandmother thinking, oh my goodness. people are going to see my grandchildren walking around, talking about pads or oh my goodness, you talk to your dad about these things. how does he just see the bed and talk about the benefits of the world? so there's a lot of cultural things funny because at the end of the day, like those comments were not said out of don't to it. there was the love encouragement, but it was the cultural side hearing what other people are going to say. the
6:48 am
problem that we're trying to solve is cumulative impacts that lack of peer products has on a good life. it begins with you not being able to have pads or being shamed for maybe having a spin in class that you won't go to school month on month when you're on your period. after we spoke to a bunch of girls who go to school and when they're a county, and they told us that since the county locked down top and because of covert, the free pads that were typically given by the government to school going gulf all stopped and so we were hearing crazy stories of girls engaging and transactional sex as young as 10 years olds to buy pads and other or getting money to buy that requirements. day on day, they were using all sorts of scrap material. that was unclean rags, clay mattresses. anything we could find,
6:49 am

6:50 am
should all of back. i think you should definitely ask yourself if you're really ready. and i think if i came sooner, i would have always missed it. i think i would have wanted to go back. i may have regretted my choice, but because i felt like i had done everything i needed to do. i had no 2nd thoughts about it. talking about top would property, we're talking about 2nd condom, you protecting yourself and others. by the way, is that still a top topic for you? or are you able to talk about it really with your sexual partner, health professionals or maybe even friends and relative? why don't you let me know in the comments? well, we're about to meet somebody who has no qualms talking about sex. and here he is. the king of condom. be who, his majesty the king of colonel will join him in his kingdom. key bare islam in the kenya, africa's largest athens. love is my kingdom these my
