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
