OUR PROJECTS > AFRIPADS
Omushana helps girls to access sanitary products so that they can attend school and continue with their lives all month by collaborating with Afripads, a fantastic Ugandan organisation that has developed a great reusable sanitary pad.
Omushana buys the packs which will last each girl for at least a year. Each pack costs approximately $5 / £4. We have local volunteer co-ordinators in 4 villages who distribute the packs, asking the girls to make a token payment to ensure they will take care of the pack once purchased.
So far we have subsidised over 200 Aripad packs - that's 200 girls who now have essential sanitary products that most of us take for granted.
