Help One Girl receive Afripads


1 out of 10 African schoolgirls skips school or drops out of school entirely due to a lack of menstrual products and poor access to proper sanitation, according to UNICEF. This critical unavailability of sanitary products in developing countries is a major barrier to education for girls of school-going age.

The  girls who use AFRIpads Menstrual Kits are empowered with the protection and comfort they need during menstruation and enables them to stay in school.

Donations also make thoughtful gifts for friends or family members. Indicate that your donation is intended as a gift, and we will supply a souvenir magnet and a gift card that can be sent to them (by you, or directly from us).  If you want us to send it, please tick the ‘ship to’ button at the checkout and provide their address.
