Project Overview

CHEAP PROVISION OF BIO-DEGRADABLE SANITARY PADS/NAPKINS TO WOMEN IN RURAL KENYA AND SLUMS.

"A healthy woman is a healthy society" - Luo Proverb(Kenya).Recent studies conducted by COFEK (The Consumers Federation of Kenya) indicates that well over 85% of women in rural Kenya and those in shanty urban settlements(ghetto) like Kibera slums, do not use sanitary pads,and roughly only 5% of those women who can afford the towels dispose of them correctly. This affects the girl/womans health, hygiene and in some cases leads to cervical cancer as well as pollution of the immediate environment. Use of proper sanitary napkins will promote proper hygiene, regular attendance at school/work place as well as a healthy rural Kenya. We plan to introduce low cost, Eco-friendly sanitary napkins to the rural female population, schools and urban slum areas and spread awareness about proper use and disposal of sanitary napkins, for a healthy hygienic life. We have identified the proper design and material to be used for the napkins to provide utmost comfort and be affordable at the same time. All the materials will be completely bio-degradable. By establishing a manufacturing plant with qualified personnel the idea is so achievable within a short time frame. Thorough education of the locals and schools also is essential for our success in this project. Once implemented, the Idea will have immense potential to change the hygiene of millions of rural women and slums in Kenya.
