AFRIpads provide four Es, impacting Ugandan communities outside of just those receiving the menstrual kits:
Education – AFRIpads help girls reach their academic potential by providing them with the protection and peace of mind to attend school, no matter what the time of month.
Empowerment – AFRIpads provide Ugandan schoolgirls with a low-cost and effective way to manage their monthly menstruation, comfortably and with dignity.
Employment – AFRIpads operates two facilities in Uganda, providing employment to at least 60 young women from surrounding villages.
Environment – AFRIpads’ commitment to environmental sustainability is demonstrated by their “green,” reusable design of menstrual kits.
