Of girls in Kibera never finish school because they can't afford sanitary pads
We're enabling girls to stay in school
About Kibera Pad Co.
Girls need sanitary pads when they menstruate. In Kibera most families can’t afford pads so girls miss days of school each month, fall behind in their work and eventually leave. My aim is to enable girls in Kibera slum to complete their education.
A micro-factory has been set up where local women can earn a living making pads, and girls can receive free pads. This enables them to stay in school!
