SANPAD

A Kenyan enterprise that manufactures and distributes a particular type of affordable and accessible underwear integrating sanitary napkins in Nairobi, in rural areas of the Rift Valley and in the provinces of the north and east of Kenya.

MAJOR ACHIEVEMENTS

  • Helped increase by 60% the attendance of girls in schools, that generally skipped because of lack of pads and even where pads are donated there are no panties
  • Unlike ordinary pants, the pad-pant does not require washing or re-use, being an enormous advantage for all economic contexts.
  • Has 8 full time employees and different wholesales and supply chains that have created other job places
  • Expanded to Uganda and soon Tanzania and Ethiopia
