Esila ('For Girls') Campaign
[Read the Lifeline Energy blog to find out more about this important initiative.]
Project Aim: To enable Maasai girls in Kenya to continue learning when they stay home from school due to family responsibilities or their menstrual periods.
Our partner in this initiative, the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC), airs radio school lessons. Lifeline Energy's radios will provide access for the girls to listen and learn from home.
In Kenya, Maasai schoolgirls have difficulties staying in school full-time.
- They have household responsibilities that keep them home (especially older girls)
- They often have no access to sanitary pads and have a limited water-supply. Menstruation remains a taboo topic.
Lifeline Energy will distribute solar and wind-up radios so girls can listen to their school lessons and not fall behind. The built-in light will also help them study at night.
