Huru believes educated young women are essential to Africa’s success and has produced more than 1,000,000 pads that have been distributed to 140,000 girls in Kenya and Tanzania.

Huru works with more than 50 local organizations to provide additional education and health supports that enable girls to stay in school.

Independent evaluation shows Huru has a significant impact on the young women it reaches, including:


  • An 87% reduction in period-related absences from school
  • Improved academic performance by 85% of Huru Kit recipients


Huru has reached more than 1,000 schools, 35,000 boys and 20,000 parents with sexual education, life skills, gender-based violence, and HIV/AIDS prevention programs.
