About this Campaign

An estimate of only 18 % of girls and women in Zambia got access to proper menstrual hygiene products. Liseli Initiative in collaboration with Ubuyantashi provides girls in school with access to free menstrual hygiene products, so they never have to skip a day in school when they are on their monthly period.

We are producing reusable sanitary pads for distribution to vulnerable girls in Zambia. All the pads are produced by ourselves with help from our local tailors in Livingstone. We are not only helping vulnerable girls, but we are also supporting the local economy as it's important for us to buy all materials used for the pads locally, and furthermore we are creating employment opportunities.

It wouldn’t be an issue to donate a bunch of disposable menstrual pads, but it wouldn’t be sustainable and we would only solve this significant issue for a limited amount of time. We had to look out for a solution that would be more permanent and sustainable.

Reusable sanitary pads are the best way to solve period poverty, and at the same time reusable sanitary pads have a lot of other benefits as well - despite being economically friendly.

Use of Funds

All funds donated will be used to buy materials for the production of the reusable sanitary pads. We will make over five thousand reusable pads so as to reach approximately 2,500 girls.
