Sanitary pads project: Using Afripads to reduce school drop out
In Africa, one in ten teenage girls misses school or drops out because of her periods. The lack of sanitary pads and stigmatization in regards to menstruating women and girls have seen many organizations like Believe in Better and KIHEFO rise to stand by them and serve them during their periods. Afripads is an inexpensive reusable sanitary pad manufactured in Uganda with high performance textile to provide effective protection for 12 or more menstrual cycles.
This partnership affords school girls who are having their periods the confidence and ability to go to school
