THE KUJUWA INITIATIVE.

Kujuwa = Knowledge

KNOWLEDGE

We train and support young people, families and educators in sexual reproductive health and rights and menstrual hygiene management.

PERIOD PRODUCTS​

We produce reusable sanitary pads by up-cycling waste materials from our SOKO Factory. The Kujuwa pad is a high quality, reusable, inexpensive pad that enables girls and women to manage their periods safely.

WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?

We are passionate about supporting girls to have the same opportunities as boys. A monthly period should not be a barrier for girls.

It should not hinder girls from attending school.

It should not cause embarrassment or shame.

We encourage girls to respect their body, to fight for equality and to aspire to a great future.

We support boys to gain a respect and understanding for the lifecycle of a woman’s body.

WHAT DO WE DO?

We tackle misconceptions, build knowledge, understanding and support around sexual reproductive health and rights and menstrual hygiene management.

The Kujuwa Initiative is a social enterprise that educates in schools, after school clubs and residential camps, teaching girls and boys, teachers and families about sexual reproductive health and rights and menstrual hygiene management.

Kujuwa employs women trained through our Stitching Academy to produce the reusable sanitary pad kits using up-cycled waste fabric from the SOKO Factory.
