The AFRIpads Foundation, established in July 2010, was created to raise funds and distribute reusable sanitary pads for vulnerable girls in Uganda. The AFRIpads Foundation believes that all girls have the right to hygienic solutions for their period. This is why we raise funds to provide disadvantaged girls, who lack the means to buy an AFRIpads Menstrual Kit themselves. For instance, girls living in refugee camps, who may not have the means to purchase their own pads.
For only 7,50 euro we can provide one girl with an AFRIpads Menstrual Kit, which can support her to manage her period for an entire year.
We invest in providing reusable pads because of the clear cost benefits they create. Reusable pads can be washed, dried and used again for a minimum of 12 months making them a highly cost-effective solution. To put it into perspective, one AFRIpads Standard 4-pack is three times more affordable than a year’s supply of disposable pads!
