The Story

Fountain Youth Initiative is a small locally run organization located in Githruai, Kenya. Their focus is to nurture, empower, and transform disadvantaged youth in the local community to become self reliant and independent through education and skill development.  The funds raised from this event will go specifically toward the Inuka Sanitary Pad Project which has been an integral part of keeping young girls in school with both increased attendance and performance levels. Studies have proven that in developing countries, young girls who need sanitary pads and are unable to afford them often leads to missing classes on days of their monthly cycle.  Over time they fall behind in school, and tend to drop out of junior high and high school at higher rates. Funds contributed from this event help with the distribution of pads, and also pays for Fountain Youth Staff to provide women’s health education in the classrooms for the recipient girls to help them out of a cycle of poverty. Help us in funding the Inuka Sanitary Pad Project and supporting over 400 young girls by attending the Bike & Wine Healdsburg fundraising event!
