Challenge

When women and girls face difficulties with managing their menstruation, it negatively impacts the enjoyment of human rights and gender equality. Less than half of adolescent girls have knowledge about menstruation and only 1 in 10 practices good menstrual hygiene. Menstruating women and girls are unable to carry out domestic work such as cooking, entering religious sites, unable to intake regular nutritious food and actively participate within their community.

Solution

The MITERI bio-degradable sanitary pad enterprise is looking to promote dignified menstruation through : 1. Challenging false perceptions and unsafe practices by providing education on dignified menstruation. 2. Access to bio-degradable menstrual hygiene materials to collect menstrual blood. 3. Training of 50 marginalised women as distributors. Women are included at all stages of value chain- as employees in production, distributors and consumers.

Long-Term Impact

Increased income and confidence of stakeholders (production staff and distributors). Improved livelihood of women through income generation. Better hygiene practices of school children- lower reproductive health risks. Increased participation in schools (better learning outcomes). Increased awareness on dignified mensuration. Impact on sustainable development goals 1,3, 5 and 8.
