An average of 51% of young girls routinely drop out of school in Ethiopia, not because they want to but due to their monthly cycle and lack of sanitary pads … known as Period Poverty. Consequently, y girls will miss several days of school every month….
75% of Ethiopian women and girls do not have access to proper menstrual products and 25% simply lack the funds…
Working with our local social enterprise Ethiopian partner Arakele, we produce reusable washable sanitary pads/towels for distribution to girls in need working directly through local councils and organizations.
Introducing Zena Period kits – Zena means Relax in Amharic and our kits provide girls with a relaxed and discreet way to manage their monthly cycles….
Using a reusable (easy to wash and quick to dry) pad is also better for the environment.
