In Nigeria, especially in rural and semi urban areas, a lot of girls entering secondary school never complete their education; one of the reasons is lack of access to affordable sanitary pads. Most families living on less than a dollar a day.
GreenPad. We have developed an affordable, highly absorbent, and biodegradable sanitary pad made from banana/plantain stems fibre, a plentiful and inexpensive agricultural by-product in Nigeria. Made by Nigerian women for Nigerian women.
Girls and Women of reproductive age.
