In 2010, AFRIpads introduced the reusable sanitary pad to Sub-Saharan Africa with an aim to overcome key challenges that women and girls were facing whilst on their period including access, affordability, and sustainability. Since then, AFRIpads has grown to become the world’s leading social enterprise manufacturing reusable sanitary pads. To date, the AFRIpads Menstrual Kits have positively impacted the lives of more than 3.5 million women and girls around the world. Following a decade of experience, AFRIpads has learned that in order to drive change, we need more than a product. Therefore, AFRIpads works with humanitarian and development partners to provide holistic menstrual health management (MHM) solution which combines product, education, and evidence. As a social enterprise dedicated to contributing to rural development, the AFRIpads factory in rural Uganda provides meaningful employment to over 150 local women.
