Help to empower girls in Uganda


Lack of menstrual products

Millions of girls living in developing countries like Uganda skip up to 20% of the school year simply because they cannot afford to buy mainstream sanitary products when they menstruate. This deliberate absenteeism has enormous consequences on girls' education and academic potential.

 


The AFRIpads menstrual kit

check quality
AFRIpads manufactures low-cost, reusable (washable) cloth sanitary pads in Uganda in order to curtail the high rates of menstrual-related absenteeism among primary and seconday schoolgirls in rural Africa. The pads are made by local Ugandan women giving them the opportunity to generate an income and send their kids to school. At the same time our menstrual kit provides schoolgirls with affordable, environmentally-friendly (washable) menstrual protection for up to 1 year at approximately 20% of the total cost of a one-year supply of commercial sanitary napkins. AFRIpads is a sustainable solution for girls and women in developing countries. The use of hygienic sanitary pads greatly enhances their health. It also provides them the opportunity to continue work and school during their period, thereby improving their future progress and development.
