Sanitary towels for school girls

Pop-Up Nairobi joined the Osotua Creative Collective at Rift Valley Music Festival, offering healthy, vegetarian meals and snacks made fresh on site. The traditional offerings at music festivals in Kenya comprise of BBQ meats and hotdogs, so the Pop-Up stand became a favourite among those looking for something healthier.

10,000 shillings of the profits were donated to Kitendo Children’s Charity (KCC), which were used to supply 55 girls with sanitary towels for 3 months, and 12 children were taken to the doctor with consultation and medications covered.

Cookswell Jikos is a great supporter of Pop-Up Nairobi and have lent us the use of their jikos many times until we raised enough money to buy our own. We highly recommend these for energy efficient outdoor cooking.
