Studies in Ghana and Kenya suggest pads and health education wins up to six weeks of school for girls. In factory settings, it is shown women would regain 6 hours of work monthly. Yet 4 in 5 women in East Africa cannot afford this vital product and lack relevant health information. Unhygienic alternatives cause untreated reproductive tract infections in at least 10% of cases, leading to potential adverse health events. With 43% of the population under 15, the problem is escalating and urgent. We make and distribute radically affordable sanitary pads coupled with comic-based health education to keep girls in school and help women and girls to thrive.
