    The Sanitary Sanity Campaign (SSC) is a program run by Dial a pad Africa that delivers sanitary pads and health education to Kenyan girls from poor social and economic backgrounds to make sure that periods do not get in the way of Girls right to Education.

    Millions of girls in the developing world lack access to menstrual products. As a result, many stay home from school during their periods, and miss up to 20% of their education, thereby increasing the likelihood of dropping out entirely. Girls who don’t complete their education marry earlier, earn less, and are at a greater risk of contracting HIV or dying giving birth.

    FAQS

    We do. The machine for the duration of the contract remains the property of Dialpad

    We do. Because the machine remains in the custody of Dial a pad. ALL expenses related to the machine are incurred by us.

    No. The girls are simply beneficiaries of the system.

    No. We adhere to the privacy laws specifically those that concern minors which state we are not allowed to pick any information that can identify a child. Therefore, no index number, no school ID. No names. Our system is completely anonymized for your child’s safety.

    We create a unique index for a particular school that index is then linked to a serial card. In case of any issue, our system reads the index number and not the child’s name.

    She needs to report it to the teacher who we have partnered with usually the matron. The matron will then alert us that a specific index number is lost. We will then deactivate the card and issue out a replacement within 24 hours.

    No. each card has a monthly limit which is set at the beginning of the month. Once the girl has exceeded that limit she must wait for the next month.
