On 22nd March 2019, Peter Kuria – the Ghetto Classics Social Worker, Mary Kabere and Peris Njeri our staff from the Art of Music offices distributed sanitary towels to Muthangari Primary School and Farasi Lane Primary School. Both schools are members of the Ghetto Classics Outreach Programme where we teach the Carnegie Hall Link Up recorder curriculum. In 2019 we will be expanding the programme with the aim of creating a fully-fledged Orchestra’s in both schools.
The sanitary towels brought a smile to the girls faces and will go a long way in helping us support the girls in our programme to have a smooth, hygienic and stable experiences during their menstrual cycles. It also promotes their self-confidence and performance in their school giving them strength to face challenges brought by their transition.
Initiatives like this help us to build closer relationships with the schools and the students and Is one more way of showing that #MakingMusicMakesADifference. A special thank you to Wacheke and the friends who donated the sanitary towels.
