Smile Across Africa (SAA) is a registered Community Based Organization (CBO) with the Ministry of Labour, Social Security and Services in the Republic of Kenya registration number: 0401/2016. In 2013, Smile Across Africa (SAA) was founded by Winnie Jerop Melly. A study conducted by the Girl Child Network found that for girls and young women living in the slums and villages of Kenya, basic necessities like sanitary pads are a luxury item. Because they couldn’t afford clean sanitary pads, many girls were using dangerous substitutes. Many reported missing school every time they had their period. Smile Across Africa (SAA) kits are distributed to at-risk-girls and are intended to prevent thousands of new HIV infections each year. Smile Across Africa (SAA) empowers girls to take advantage of educational opportunities, gain qualifications for adult jobs, educate others and pursue their dreams.

For every extra year of schooling, her income will increase by 10 – 25 percent. She’ll reinvest 90 percent of the money she earns back into her family. Educating a girl has a ‘multiplier effect’.
