The form one student urged parents to care for teenagers and was touched after receiving news of the plight of girls in the area.
"I'd like to thank my parents for helping me and giving me the guidance, I saw news that my fellow students are suffering and I had some cash left so I sought to help the needy girls in order for God to also help me.
"Some of the girls lack parental love because some of them do not even have parents and I'd like to urge parents to especially show love to teenagers," explained the form one girl.
Kanini noted that some of the teenage pregnancies arise from young girls lacking sanitary towels as they are forced into sex to get the sanitary towels.
The young girl felt fulfilled after helping the needy girls get the much sought after commodity and putting a smile on their faces.
Juliana Fati one of the beneficiaries of Kanini's donation was delighted to receive the pads and blamed the alarming number of teenage pregnancies on lack of sanitary towels.
"We are gathered here as girls to get help from our fellow student who observed that most girls are having trouble when home.
"She gave us sanitary towels that we were happy to receive, a number of girls are getting pregnant because of lack of pads," she noted.
