Topics Documentary, Education, Health/Healing, Photography, Reportage, Womens Rights
When girls from the Turkana tribe have beads on their neck, it means they are ready for marriage. Some of these girls are as young as 9.
Education is a luxury and these girls don't only not know how to read or write but they aren't aware of basic female hygiene either
While this has been the situation, Sarah and other volunteers have been bringing these girls together to give them basic education.
The girls can write their names and know how to use sanitary napkins.While Sarah distributes hygiene products regularly to the girls. They do not distribute or educate them to recyclables as there’s very little access to water in these regions due to severe drought.
