kujuwa initiative.

We are passionate about supporting girls to have the same opportunities as boys. We strive to end period stigma, normalise menstruation and give girls and menstruators the equal opportunities they deserve.

ENDING PERIOD POVERTY

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

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

We employ women to produce our washable sanitary pads using fabric waste from the SOKO Kenya Clothing Factory and donate them to girls alongside training.

Our team encourages girls to respect their body, to fight for equality and to aspire to a great future and support boys to gain a respect and understanding of the lifecycle of a woman’s body.

The Kujuwa sanitary pad is a KEBS* certified high quality, reusable pad that enables girls and menstruators to manage their periods safely.

All our pads come with removable flannel liners, increasing absorbency for the heaviest of flow. They are super easy to wash, and will provide a girl with up to three years worth of protection.
