The university lecturer has invested her time and resources in running this campaign with an aim of providing sanitary pads to girls who cannot afford them. This is to help the girls so that they do not miss school during that time of the month.
Stella started her campaign after government revealed that it had no funds to honour its promise made during the presidential elections.
