Keeping Girls in School One Pad at a Time
Provide girls with tools and resources to go to school, stay in school and complete their education
Why we do it
Educating girls helps foster economic growth and its crucial to lifting households out of poverty
Did you know that lack of sanitary pads and undergarments keep girls out of class for 4 days every month? What can you do to help?
Pad Heaven Initiative is a social enterprise that manufactures low cost sanitary pads to keep girls in class during their periods.Over 900,000 girls in Kenya miss upto 4 days a month from school due to lack of access to affordable sanitary pads.
We are changing that through our re-usable sanitary pads which we produce with the help of the inmates at Langata women’s Prison. We have also ventured in the manufacture of a disposable pad made from agricultural by products. Pad Heaven has also published a book on Menstrual hygiene to educate young girls on menstruation management. Thank you for visiting. We look forward to your support and feedback Kamaitha
