Porridge, Eggs and Sanitary Products Project in Sorwathe

The Sorwathe Tea Factory is one of the tea estates we source from in Rwanda; however, the community within the area includes many low-income families, and this often means that children don’t have a balanced or varied diet. 

The Sorwathe Sanitary project is extremely important as it empowers young women to manage their periods without shame or stigma. I handed out the kits to each girl and to be a part of that gave me a greater understanding of how important these kits are — they not only improve attendance at school but have a huge impact on their wellbeing.
