Re-usable sanitary pads

In partnership with Langata Women Prison, Pad Heaven started producing re-usable sanitary pads with an aim of keeping girls in class as well as providing inmates with an economic activity while in prison.

The venture grew and we opened a second workshop which we employed ex-inmates as part of our partnership with the prison.

We pack the pads in a pack of 6 and sell at Ksh 600. The pack can last three academic terms saving a girl at least Ksh 700 a year.
