Guest Speakers- Karen Cendro & Jeannine Sparks
A Rotary Trip to Africa. Empowering the Youth of Mozambique.
Joann Hilton introduced PDG Karen Cendro and Jeannine Sparks. They began by describing how difficult it was to travel to Mozambique. Then they described the difficulties the young females have with menstruation, saying that the monthly occurrence causes the girl to miss school, they are shamed, and there is stigma attached to this biological happening. The population in Mozambique does not have readily available access to supplies needed when girls have their periods. Districts 5180 and 9210 came together with a solution for this problem. They designed kits that included all the necessary items that were made of colorful cloth that could be used many times. The items were stitched on sewing machines from several patterns. Then sewing machines, both manual and electric, were delivered by Karen and Jeannine, with other Rotarians, to a village in Mozambique. The making of the kits was taught to 2 schools so that they could continue to make the kits after training. They were able to educate the school girls in puberty and reproduction and how to be safe from unwanted pregnancies. (A male Rotarian was able to discuss puberty and reproduction with the boys.) There were many challenges both in designing the kits, getting them to the poorest part of Mozambique, traveling 14/15 hours with additional layovers, language issues and customs surprises. However, Karen and Jeannine said it was worth it when the school greeted them with a joyful song and expressed such happiness on their arrival.
