THE GREAT PnP BLAST CONCERT!!!
30th September 2011 at Alliance Francaise Gardens Nairobi
From 7pm to 10pm
ENTRY: 1 packet of Pads and or Panties… (Also available the entrance)
The main Artiste perfoming will be Iddi Achieng with the support of musicians Makadem, Asali, Judith Bwire, peter young, kevo, and Jarta dancers
THE IDDI ACHIENG TRUST (TIAT) is a community focused organization whose goal since inception in 2008 is working together with marginalized communities to realize positive developmental change .Our current programs whose focus is the girl child under the ‘Ka Dana Education Initiative’ seeks to ensure steady class attendance and retention through provision of sanitary towels and panties to rural primary school girls as an entry point to discuss Reproductive Health Education. Hence the title of the concert….(Panties and Pads)
THE IDDI ACHIENG TRUST was founded by musician, actress and social worker, IDDI ACHIENG who has through the Trust secured 8,068 panties from a campaign called “Panties with Purpose” run by an online shop called MARIDADI.co.ke.
Initiated by Maridadi.co.ke, PANTIES WITH PURPOSE is the largest recent global campaign to help keep girls in school. This is because underprivileged school girls in Kenya miss up to 40 school days in a year due to their menstrual cycle (UNICEF 2005) as they do not have access to proper sanitary pads or underwear. It was launched earlier this year to collect undergarments for underprivileged girls. More than 40 cities were involved and the total number of panties collected to date has exceeded 20,000. So far 8,000 have been distributed. Maridadi.co.ke believes that change begins with basics and that human dignity must be upheld even in the smallest places which are not seen on maps, such as schools, classrooms, playgrounds, homes, offices and work places. It believes that human dignity is a basic right and has partnered with the Iddi Achieng Trust to bring dignity to girls who live, work and play in the smallest places.
The goal is to distribute the pads and panties to 20 targeted primary schools with a total of 2,017@4per girl in Alego South, Karemo Division, Bar Ongong’o Zone, Siaya County. The Nairobi concert purposes to raise sanitary protection to match these panties through the unifying factor of music. The event will also be graced by GoK representatives, Invited Development Partners, Friends of TIAT, opinion shapers and fans and will also be the main launch of TIAT
