Keeping girls in school, one pad at a time

Overview

Over 900,000 girls in Kenya miss up to 4 days a month from school due to lack of access to affordable sanitary pads. Pad Heaven Initiative is a social enterprise that manufactures low cost sanitary pads to keep girls in class during their periods. It has also published a booklet called
‘Path to womanhood’ that has been developed to help school girls manage menstruation as well as developed a prototype of a disposable pad, which is made from agricultural by- products.
