Breaking Barriers: Empowering Girls with Washable Sanitary Pads

Breaking Barriers: Empowering Girls with Washable Sanitary Pads

Hey there!

Did you know that for many young girls in Africa, menstruation isn't just a natural part of life – it's a huge barrier to education and opportunity? It's heartbreaking to think that so many girls are bullied and made to feel ashamed during their period. And the sad reality is that due to a lack of access to affordable sanitary pads, one million girls in Kenya alone miss school each month. That's a staggering number, isn't it?

But here's the good news: there's a solution, and it's making a real difference in the lives of these girls. Enter Kujuwa sanitary pads – they're not your average pads. These pads are certified by the Kenya Bureau of Standards, so you know they're top-notch in quality and reliability. But that's not all – they're also eco-friendly and cost-effective.

These washable pads provide girls with a zero-waste, non-toxic alternative to disposables. With removable flannel liners for added absorbency, they offer up to three years of protection and peace of mind. And the best part? They're super easy to wash! So not only are you helping the environment, but you're also helping girls stay in school and pursue their dreams.

At Cocolili, we're proud to be a part of this incredible initiative. We've teamed up with the Kujuwa Initiative, led by Soko Kenya, to tackle period poverty head-on. Together, we're turning fabric waste into a powerful solution – washable sanitary pads that empower girls to manage their periods safely and confidently.

But we can't do it alone. We need your help to normalise menstruation and end period shame. So why not join us in this fight against period stigma and inequality? You can purchase washable sanitary pads directly from the Kujuwa Initiative website or reach out to them for more information.

Together, let's make a difference. Together, let's break barriers and empower girls everywhere.

With love and solidarity,

Your friends at Cocolili
