In 2017, our team apporoached the Officer in Charge at Langata Women Prison.
Our aim was to teach inmates how to make reusable sanitary pads for sale, teach them a skill and enable them earn an income while in prison in an effort to reduce re-offence.
We trained over 15 women and made over 10,000 pieces of pads. From this group, we managed to hire 7 inmates once they were done with their sentence. None of the 7 has gone back to prison.
We made sure we intergrated them into the society and gave them secon chances to make a difference in our society.
