5000 USD
Overview:
18% of women and girls in Rwanda miss work or school because they can’t afford to buy menstrual pads. This amounts to a potential GDP loss of $215 per woman every year in our country. We produce eco-friendly reusable sanitary pads for young women and girls. We organize events to discuss the girls/women’s challenges associated with menstruation and train women how to make pads for themselves. Our cost-effective sanitary pads are the only reusable sanitary pads brand made in Rwanda that help us provide to underprivileged school girls the ability to stay in school the whole year without missing classes during their period.
