Our vision is to help empower the girl child. This sanitary towels project targets school-going girls from disadvantaged social and economic backgrounds in their puberty
At the primary level,these will encompass girls from age 9 to 15. The Initiative will organize trainings and question-and-answer sessions to give girls a forum to discuss related issues along with female teachers and other staff in the schools.
This project will be on-going and is envisioned to address not only girls in Tulila Primary school and but also other area surrounding schools in the rural area of Mwala County in Kenya.
Girls health and hygiene has been one of the key concerns over the years across the world and Especially in the rural areas, the education and awareness on menstrual hygiene and usage of sanitary napkins is almost absent.
The adolescent girls get information and education on menstruation from her mother and grandmother, who themselves had practiced the unhygienic behaviors for years and thus do not see any harm in the practices of using old cloths during menstruation.
By creating enough awareness regarding menstrual hygiene’s importance and use of sanitary napkins will help prevent diseases from happening in the rural areas and eliminate the problems faced by the girl child.
No one has a choice of what life they are born into and what challenges they
may face with it. However, there are people we meet who help change our
lives forever. This is what we want to do and what we want to change for the
future of our girls
Our vision to help empower the girl child. This sanitary towels project targets school-going girls from disadvantaged social and economic backgrounds in their puberty. Our mission is to forge local and global alliances to end period stigma and empower women and menstruators worldwide.
The Girls Pad Project isn’t alone in the fight for menstrual equity. We partner with domestic and international nonprofits to make sure our programs fit the individual menstrual hygiene needs of each community where we work. We also believe that educating people about menstruation is a necessary part of the menstrual equity movement.
We supply a variety of washable, biodegradable, 100% cotton, and reusable sanitary pads.
Our intention is to create a more sustainable environment, as well as help women gain access to necessities without having to discard the waste of plastic sanitary towels.
