Happy new year! Thanks to all of our AFRIpads supporters, in 2014 we improved the lives of more than 206,000 girls and women in Uganda and around the world. It was a year of exponential growth for AFRIpads. We started 2014 with 65 employees and grew to nearly 150 full-time staff. This enabled us to increase production levels by 170% and we now have 4 production locations!
In 2015 2 of our big dreams will come true. Early 2015 we will hit our goal of reaching HALF A MILLION girls and women with our AFRIpads Menstrual Kits. And during the year we will build our very own factory, enabling us to move our manufacturing under one roof, to scale-up our production capacity, and to create even more village-based jobs. This is more than just our social impact, it is the realization of dreams we had years ago when AFRIpads was only a seed of an idea. On behalf of the AFRIpads team, enormous thanks to our community of supporters for helping make our dreams of empowering women come true!
