Crown Motors Group to donate 500 dignity kits to Heels4Pads Foundation
Crown Motors Group has today announced that it will be donating 500 dignity kits to Heels4Pads Foundation. The dignity kits will be geared towards meeting the menstrual needs of girls and women in the coastal region who are adversely affected by challenges that stem from period poverty. Each dignity kit will cover each woman’s menstrual needs for a duration of up to 2 years.
The event will be headlined by Nairobi County Women Representative, Esther Passaris, who will be the guest speaker. Additionally, the dignity kits will be flagged off by Crown Motors Group Managing Director, Tony Voorhout and Maliha Sheikh, National Sales Manager for Crown Motors alongside Heels4Pads Foundation Founders, Monicah Muhoya, Angela Waweru, Co-founder Angela Muiruri as well as Apollo Tours and Travel Marketing Director, Agnes Wamai.
“At Crown Motors, we recognize the larger responsibility that we need to play and which goes beyond our clientele. We strongly feel that it is our duty to identify the needs of the less privileged in our communities and offer them the support they need.” Says Tony Voorhout.
“A great society is built on the bricks of elevation and building confidence. And confidence is exactly what these dignity kits will give and restore to all these women and girls.” Adds Maliha Sheikh.
The Heels4Pads Foundation Trust which is under Sister Speaks Global looks to raise and amplify awareness on period poverty while empowering women and girls to advance gender equality and equity through the menstrual health approach. The initiative employs innovation to raise, distribute sanitary towels and offer MHM education to girls and women in impoverished backgrounds in Kenya as well as destigmatize menstruation and menstrual hygiene as a whole. It also seeks to influence policies through advocacy for menstrual equality.
