'My First Time' is a portrait series of people from Kenya who openly share what their first experience with menstruation was like.
It strikes a healthy balance of representation and inclusion and captures the accounts of both men and women from different cultural backgrounds, religions and abilities. From some of Kenya’s most famous faces to individuals who don’t often have their voices heard, the book captures powerful information in the form of storytelling as a tool for advocacy and policy change, addressing the causes, manifestations and injustices associated with #PeriodStigma #MenstrualEquity and #PeriodPoverty in Kenya. Funds raised from the book will go to providing innovative solutions for access and information and solutions to addressing period poverty, with the Carolina For Kibera and Inua Dada Centre being one of them.
the stigma that envelopes conversations around menstrual health will be a fading memory.
