Invest in refugee women and girls.
We believe that access to menstrual pads is a basic health necessity. So why are there communities that still lack access to them? Refugee women and girls shouldn’t have to go without basic health and income. We’ve partnered with the United Nations Commissioner for Refugees to launch the Refugee Ambassador Program to provide a solution for this need.
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.
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.
