WHAT WE DO
Uplifting girls and women in Uganda
Many girls and women who are unable to afford sanitary products have no option but to leave school or work and resort to unhygienic and uncomfortable menstrual hygiene alternatives. We aim to break down this barrier to women's prosperity, education and empowerment with our reusable and low-cost pads.
Our pads are locally crafted in Jinja, supporting seamstresses in the community. Profits go towards offering sexual reproductive health education training for schools and communities, and reusable pad sewing skills. By enabling girls to fulfil their potential, we can ensure the future success of our families, communities and country.
