Why Reusable Pads?


Reusable pads can be used for a period of between 6 months to 2 years


Normal sanitary pads are very expensive, thus this is the best option for girls in remote areas.


They help the environment by reducing the amount of plastic waste produced by ordinary sanitary pads.


We're not simply giving the girls pads; we're also giving them skills to help them manage their periods..
