My name is Lucas Gmelig. Since the summer of 2022, I am proud to be part of this dedicated board. I work for the Dutch Charity Lotteries as Relationship Manager. My focus is in projects related to art and cultural heritage. Besides work, I think it is important to contribute to a better world. Ten years ago with a friend, we started an organization with the goal of bringing elderly people together; unfortunately, due to Covid 19, we had to stop our activities. Nevertheless, it gives me time for new challenges, and being a board member for the AFRIpads Foundation is one of them. With a very important vision and mission! The problems of access to affordable menstrual health products is a worldwide problem, so even though the foundation has worked largely in Africa, we now see more and more girls and women in other parts of the world which we wouldn’t expect who are also without access. Even in Western Europe. So I’m interested to see what our role as a foundation nowadays could be. Could we play a part to deliver our knowledge and products to other parts of the world? That is now my goal for the foundation to reach more girls and women. Join us?
