Summary

Through False Labels Global Inc.we will help 10 million rural women and girls in overcoming the social barriers linked with menstruation by providing them with low-cost sanitary pads (KujaEcoPads),an innovation that produces 100% biodegradable sanitary pads from locally sourced banana stem fibers.We plan to buy land and build a production center for the 20 who are currently working in a very small rented space.

Challenge

There are currently more than 10 million women in Cameroon who do not use sanitary napkins due to high cost an accessibility. Our current rented center is small and expensive which does not give sufficient space for meetings,extraction of raw materials,storage, processing,training and production of the pads.This hinders us from meeting the high demand from women who need our pads. This project will impact more than 10 million women here in Cameroon and beyond.

Solution

Our strategy will be five fold: 1.Purchase a piece of land on which to build a permanent and spacious center 2. Scale up production, distribution and sales of low cost sanitary products 3.Develop workshops to educate girls (from 10 to 20) on biology and menstrual hygiene best practices, 4.Engage family members, schools, government and specialists to increase outreach 5.Empower women economically as they are involved in the entire value chain.

Long-Term Impact

Investing in girls' education and health is a direct investment in the future.The center will enable us to increase access to affordable sanitary pads for 10 million girls,decrease school dropout rate for girls and use of unhygienic alternatives, increase knowledge and awareness on menstrual hygiene,and the number of girls who graduate from college and become community leaders. This will create sustainable employment and a source of income for 1000 women who are involve in the entire value chain
