Story

Lack of Healthcare, Clean Water and deaths birth from Starvation in developing countries is the sad reality…

But please let’s talk about menstruation!

- Thousands cannot afford or access proper menstrual products

- Many girls and women rely on improvised materials like scraps of old clothing, pieces of foam mattress, leaves, and banana fibres to manage their menstruation – all of which are unhygienic, ineffective, and uncomfortable.

- Critical unavailability of sanitary products in developing countries is a major barrier to education for girls, contributing to absences each month from sch.

- Eventually many of these girls drop out of school entirely, increasing their likelihood of teen pregnancy, health complications and early marriage, and further limiting their future career and economic opportunities.

- Menstruation is one of the most common and uniquely female experiences. Unfortunately, the reality is that around the world millions of girls and women struggle to manage their monthly periods.

Why Afripads?
o The reusable sanitary pads are locally manufactured and supplied in Africa.
o No more week of shame and humiliation Lives are changed
o livelihood is also created for women and by women.
