Project Report | Aug 24, 2023
Girls on the Cutting Edge of Feminine Hygiene

By Shana Greene | Co-Executive Director

Dear supporter of girls,
When you donate to purchase sanitary pads for girls, you are helping them be stronger, go to school with confidence, and assist the girls who work in the sanitary pad plants in India and in Kenya. All the pads made are biodegradable and made from waste products.
We have great news in Kenya. The Lenana Girls High School (LGHS), associated with our long-term partner Common Ground for Africa, developed a sanitary pad from sugar cane waste. The girls are being awarded the 2023 Green Kids Awards nationally in Kenya. Showcasing their work to the judges, they highlighted Lenana's mission, vision, and challenges in their environmental conservation and educational journey.
Nalena Pads is a project of LGHS in Kitale, Trans Nzoia County. LGHS is driven by leadership, entrepreneurship, technology, and innovation. The high school serves not only talented girls but also economically disadvantaged girls with demonstrable leadership potential.
Pads are being made out of sugar cane waste that is always burnt by millers polluting the environment. The project is set to solve a problem faced by girls and women regarding menstrual hygiene by solving the problem of sugar millers' waste disposal.
These girls are focused on the future health of the planet. Let's continue to support all of the young women who make sanitary pads for girls who are disadvantaged and empower young women inventors.
Thank you for your ongoing support,
