Reusable sanitary pads

Overcoming menstrual issues with reusable sanitary pads

We are currently working on a reusable sanitary pads projects; too many rwandan women cannot afford to buy the too-expensive sanitary protections offered in supermarkets or in pharmacies. Many of them resort to non-hygenic methods and complain about these unsanitary protections they are forced to use. About 20% or schoolgirls in rural areas miss 5 days a month on average because of menstruation. We, at Tubahumurize, together with our sewing cooperative, intend to change women’s lives and to provide them with an unexpensive and sustainable type of protection.

More information shall come.

Once more, thank you for supporting Tubahumuize.
