Hygiene Education

The most urgent investment in remote rural areas is education. Education is the method with the highest return on investment, which can affect a family, a community, and even a generation. Menstrual poverty is the reason why many families are forced to interrupt their investment in education. Many people can't afford sanitary pads sold on the market, resulting in a drag on learning and health, while poverty continues to cycle through the family for generations.

Reusable pad workshop


  • To enable disadvantaged women in remote African villages to acquire technical homemade sanitary supplies.
  • Provide materials and tools for sewing reusable pads.
  • To inspire feminist awareness and assist in self-awareness and confidence.


Create collaborative groups

  •  Connect local schools, churches, NGOs, and communities of women.

Teaching course content (3-4 hours)

  • How to choose fabric material acquisition and price.
  • Reusable pad cleaning and maintenance.
  • Sewing reusable pad.
  • Build confidence.
  • Personal hygiene education.

Training courses

Women are encouraged to share their menstrual experiences and introduce the importance of Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM), and also support and encourage each other. The training course lasts for 3 hours and can be held under a tree, church or school; I look forward to working with more groups to promote reusable pads. Provide reusable pads sewing teaching, and the finished product or material can be traded in the community in the future.

Girls helping girls = 

We work with local women (seed teachers) and help them to get the resources they need to train girls to make reusable pads. Seed teachers not only have insight but also help girls; in the long run, their influence and support network also multiply as each girl is helped, continuing to help them grow and thrive in life.
