    Here's Why
  • CAN A MAXIPAD CHANGE THE WORLD?
    YEP.

    Girls can miss up to 50 days of school simply because they can't afford menstrual pads.

    HERE'S HOW

THE STATUS QUO MUST GO.

 

We believe that international aid alone isn’t the answer to solving many of the largest socio-economic problems of our time. You can’t stick a band-aid on global poverty, hunger or disease.

We are a social venture

that invests in people and ideas that are typically overlooked (and often taboo) as vehicles of social and economic change.

SHE28 CAMPAIGN

18% of women and girls in Rwanda missed out on work or school last year because they could not afford to buy menstrual pads. Apart from the personal injustice stemming from menstrual taboos and the larger issues of health and dignity, that’s a potential GDP loss of $215 per woman every year in Rwanda – all because of a lack of access to menstrual pads. It’s bad business. Bottom line.
