-It started with the voice of 3 leaders
-Jocelyne, Katie and Katerina
And a simple equation to start with
2$ a month x 12 months=24$
35 participants x 10 (each person will influence
10 others to do the same)= 350 persons
350x24$=8400$ + FACEBOOK…
WE Target to provide affordable sanitary
products for more than 4500 girls in Londiani!
-24h later they convinced 35 other
Facilitators to join
-2 weeks later they used their voice
online to influence more than 500
Members to join their Facebook page
-Few days ago Evelyne went to Nairobi
To check for raw materials and machinery…
