Help Us Fight Period Poverty

One Pad At A Time.

What we do

Our Social Enterprise program produces reusable sanitary pads, to compate period poverty which currently is the cause for 1 in 10 girls to miss school, according to UNESCO. 

Our reusable sanitary pads are a financially and environmentally sustainable choice to fight period poverty. With our pads girls can attend up to 50 more days in school per year. This also compacts the gender academic performance gap. 

With better attendance and performance, girls have more opportunities for academic success, thereby creating greater access to higher education and employment. Further breaking down the cycle of poverty.

The goal for the programme is to generate new, financially sustainable forms of impact for the Umoja Centre. The small profits we make are directly reinvested in The Umoja Centre's other programmes. 

We also offer Menstrual Health Courses to advocate and enlighten young women on menstrual health.
