Empowering women – menstrual hygiene is an integral part of health. CFK is proud to help keep girls stay at school in Kiriwina through menstrual hygiene product distribution and education.  Targeting the most at risk demographic in need of this hygiene product the Kiriwinan schools have come on board and are distributing the CFK re-usable menstrual pad kits to their students. Thank you to all our sponsors and donors for allowing this wonderful initiative to become a reality and help empower thousands of Kiriwinan girls.

CFK sent our in-country manager over to Kiriwina to personally deliver the donated items directly to the intended recipients.

Here are some photos of happy members of the CFK Health & Hygiene Committee with their newly donated torches meeting on the 8th June and a photo of the results of this clean village initiative.

“The torches will help them greatly in maintaining the cleanliness of the village. The other photo shows part of the village and how this committee has made great impacts and efforts to maintain the cleanness of the village.
