Girls in rural communities find it very difficult to go to school when in their menstrual flow. This has caused poor performances in their academics. Girls deserve to be in school like every other person. No human on earth should suffer for being human. This is why we’re collaborating with Greenpad concept to make eco-friendly sanitary pads from plantain stem.
Greenpad doesn’t just make sanitary towels from waste plantain stem, they also empower women in rural communities. Women from our community are currently benefitting from this program. It is eco-friendly, very available, accessible and affordable. We are glad that our girls won’t have to face these challenges again.
