Kakenya Ntaiya was set to follow the traditional path of all girls born in the small village of Enoosaen, Kenya. Engaged at the age of 5, she was to be circumcised by the time she became a teenager. But she had a different plan. First, she negotiated with her father: she would willingly agree to be circumcised only if he would allow her to finish high school. He agreed. Then she negotiated with the village elders to do what no girl had ever done before: leave her village to go to college in the United States. She received a scholarship to Randolph Macon college in Virginia and returned to Kenya to change her hometown forever.

Alliance high school is still basking in the glory of being the top ranked school in the 2013 KCSE examination and also producing the best student in the country. Its a performance that almost matches that of previous year's keeping alive a tradition that was developed 88 years ago. But one might ask what is the secret behind the school's success? Are they geniuses or is it that they are taught by extra ordinary teachers? Our reporter spent a day at the school and tells us the extra miles the students have to walk in order to enjoy the perennial success they register with almost every announcement of the results of the KCSE examinations.

Creating a successful business has meant that instead of being so caught up in just trying to manage my own family's basic necessities I've been able to do INCREDIBLE things like travel to Kenya on a doTERRA co-impact sourcing trip. This video is of me at a Days for Girls event modelling one of our reusable pads on the outside of my underwear to help the girls and young women feel confident and good about it! Periods are taboo in Kenya and the woman teaching these girls here was telling me at dinner how she use to go out and get the driest, flattest cow dung and use that as a pad and miss school and work when she bled. She had to go back to school as an adult because she missed so much, and most don't even get that option. Now she passionately travels teaching what our periods actually mean and how to take care of ourselves! We handed out hundreds of these free kits while we were there, which will mean no missing school and work for these women when they are bleeding! Here in Aus I have helped fund a local Days for Girls project to get these kits made so they can be taken to places like Kenya, Nepal and other rural areas and help girls and women receive education, employment and remove shame. If you'd like to support you can join this group and either donate or join a sowing/cutting day https://www.facebook.com/groups/daysforgirlsqueensland/ While we were there we helped make improvements to two primary schools and got to spend time with the beautiful children, learn with, play, dance, sing and paint in between our work. Cut the ribbon on a fresh water station where previously girls and women would walk kilometers each day for DIRTY water that was infested with crocodiles (a young girl lost her arm the week before we arrived) and the highest instances of rape were while they were getting this water. Daryl and I had to work away into the bush for a moment to have a sob about what this meant for these beautiful, resilient people. AND doTERRA have partnered with smallholder farmers in southern Kenya to create hundreds of jobs (thousands by now) and we are expected to create over 5,000 rural farming jobs by 2020. This is MASSSSIVE for the economy and people here. doTERRA through Healing Hands donations have also built a beautiful community centre here, we had an official opening while we were there where they teach people how to sustainably farm, own their own land, educate the community and hold fun events like movie nights. Healing Hands funds have also been used to build a new kindergarten, community water tower and river bridge to help with accessibility issues. Other projects include- Creation of a water maintenance trust fund; Indigenous culture and health trainings for over 2,000 school-aged children; and Education and reforestation of indigenous trees. Bloody amazing, honestly. Blows my mind that I am able to be involved in helping give back. Do you donate to Healing Hands when you place an order? Put Rose Lotion and our beautiful Hope Blend on each LRP. ALL proceeds go to Healing Hands AND they make beautiful gifts. Don't have oils yet but like the sound of getting yours from a company who make such a massive global difference and source EVERYTHING ethically and sustainably??

SUBSCRIBE NOW FOR MORE CONTAGIOUSLY INSPIRING STORIES: http://bit.ly/BrightVibesSubscribe Thanks to free sanitary pads, Kenyan students can go to school every day A new Kenyan law, gives schoolgirls the right to free sanitary pads. In western countries it’s natural, but in developing countries, it’s a huge step forwards. Girls miss about 20% of the classes in Kenya, due to the lack of hygiene products.The products are relatively expensive. The price of a pack of sanitary pads is equivalent to the daily income of an unskilled laborer. As a consequence, about 60% of the girls miss school on a regular basis. This increases the chances of early school-leaving. Thanks to this new law, schools now have the responsibility to buy and distribute the sanitary pads. This helps break the cycle of poverty. Education for girls is imperative for the development of the economy and equal rights in developing countries. This problem isn’t confined to Kenya, but occurs in other African countries as well. Hopefully other developing countries will soon follow Kenya’s example.
