Summary

Many women and girls in our community struggle with coping with their monthly periods. Many have no access to sanitary pads or clean water, and are faced with taboos and customs that discourage and or look down on issues relating to the menstrual cycle every month. Kibagare Pad Project aims to bring Compostible Sanitary Pads to the community and help educate, support and guide women, not only with their monthly cycle, but also with female health, education and provide Dignity Packs.

Challenge

Many Women and girls do not only struggle with maintaining their own dignity and hygiene but they are also forced to miss out on work and for the younger ones, they are forced to miss out on schooling. There are instances where girls are forced to seek other ways to afford sanitary pads These are a few of the many challenges that girls from this community face on a monthly basis. The Pad Project offers a solution and will be able to evolve to support the females of the community in many ways.

Solution

Thanks to our partnership with WorldServe international, Aakar Innovations and St Martins School here in Kenya we plan to empower and offer the women of our community with bio degradable sanitary pads and dignity packs. We have a shared goal and we hope through this partnership we will be able to solve the challenges around menstral health and help the women from the community have a dignified day to day life. Providing not just pads, but support, and education.

Long-Term Impact

To support female period poverty. To provide the women with a solution to lack of sanitary pads, support, health education and a hygienic and sustainable method for the wellbeing of the environment. To be able to tackle, through education and support, the taboo around menstruation and the effect that this has on all females. To empower females to regain their dignity and be able to continue with their day to day life, every day of every month.
