HELPING GIRLS IN EAST AFRICA

Help thousands of girls in East Africa.
The Kids League (TKL) has been chosen as a finalist in the “Nike – Changemakers Sport for a Better World Competition”.

Three projects will be declared winners by popular online voting. The voting began on February 18th and closes on Sunday March 2nd.  Winners will be announced on Monday March 3rd and each will receive US$5,000. The Kids League (profiled in Sisterhood Agenda Magazine’s Spring 2007 issue) would like to invite you to support their innovations by voting on the Changemakers website at:

TKL’s qualifying  innovation is to help more girls take part in sports programmes and go to school by developing, manufacturing and marketing low-cost sanitary protection using local materials. They have partnered and linked together our friends at Moving the Goalposts (MTG)  in Kenya to develop this programme in conjunction with the developer of the “Makapads” system, Professor Musaazi of Makerere University . This makes TKL a truly East African partnership in development, an innovation in itself!

You can read more about “Tunaweza (Kiswahili: we can do it!): Girls Helping Themselves in East Africa” at:

[The innovation is listed under TKL’s partners name – Moving The Goalposts, Kenya.]

Voting is very simple and quick and you must vote for 3 agencies, so please help make a difference for our global sisters!
