Pads for you, pads for her

Schermafbeelding_2013-03-12_om_17.10.48.pngYou cannot imagine missing out on a party or meeting with friends simply because it’s that time of the month. Imagine this little fact of life ruining your chances of education! This is the reality for girls in Somalia. Thousands of girls skip 20% of the school year, simply because they cannot afford sanitary products when they menstruate. Not wanting to risk embarrassment, they rather stay at home. Because of this they get behind or even drop out of school.

This isn’t fair, it isn’t right and it’s definitely a huge waste of potential. Education empowers girls to decide and build their own future. HIRDA provides girls re-usable pads so they can attend school 100% of the year. In the long run, HIRDA aims to establish workplaces in Somalia, so the women can: produce pads themselves, earn an income and send their daughter to school.

You can be part of this simple, sustainable and practical solution! When you buy this month sanitary pads for you, buy some for her! You shouldn’t miss out on anything, make sure she does not either! Offer the prize of your pads through this link so she can buy them too and attend school the rest of the year.
