Training women

Pad heaven trains women on production and entrepreneurship skills. Through our Heavenly wash cloths, we train women to sew sanitary pads and sell to make a living.

People living in rural peripheries, especially women, shoulder the burden of the worlds’ poverty. To respond to the needs of women to materialize , their economic potential and thereby to improve their standard of living, it is necessary to train them in an economic activity, allow them to be decision makers, participants and beneficiaries in a development activity


 Reproductive health

Pad heaven team is committed to training 5,000 women and girls on Menstrual and Reproductive health in schools and communities. Our team also trains employers on sanitary needs at the work place to ensure that women’s needs are taken care of, and she can go on about her day with dignity.

Menstruation is a taboo subject in many parts of the country, and we believe that lack of adequate information leads to early teenage pregnancy and infection to STDs while still in their adolescent.

Our objective is to have as many girls as possible informed about their bodies, so she is able to make informed decisions in life regarding issues like sex.


 Outcomes

Advancing education

Girls’ right to education is being violated through inadequate menstrual hygiene education, insufficient water and sanitation facilities, and poor access to sanitary menstrual materials. Menstrual hygiene facilities and services keep girls in school where they can reach their full potential

Strengthening the economy – When women’s sanitary needs are not met at the workplace,

Businesses and the economy suffer. Investing in menstrual hygiene can provide great business opportunities as well as create local jobs.

Better health for women and girls – Poor menstrual hygiene not only affects physical health,

but also social and mental well–‐being, thus is a violation of the human right to health.

Protection of the environment– Disposable menstrual hygiene products can affect the environment in different ways, however sustainable options are gaining popularity, and the information we provide teaches girls on the alternatives to use.

Realising Human Rights All human rights stem from the fundamental right to human dignity. When women and girls are forced into seclusion, must use damp and soiled materials, or fear smelling or leaking due to inadequate Menstrual hygiene management, dignity is difficult to maintain.
