About Seattle Limbe Sister City Association:
SLSCA, part of the City of Seattle Sister City program, is a multi-ethnic collective of women from all faiths, backgrounds and cultures who gather monthly to make feminine care kits. Young girls in Limbe, Cameroon, West Africa do not have access to sanitary napkins during their menses and consequently cannot attend school during this time. This means that girls miss a month or more of school each year, do not finish their education as a result, and are forced into early marriages.
SLSCA began making these feminine care kits in 2015 and so far, have created 3,000 kits. Delegates from Seattle travel to Cameroon each year to distribute these kits to the girls and to conduct health education sessions for girls and boys.
