Investing in teenage girls for a more just and stable world!
Africa Pads is a social enterprise that uses African fabric and resources to teach the Malawian women to make menstrual pads themselves. The village of Kamweko is currently producing Africa Pads. This process empowers the women to run a business and sell the pads locally. However, most schoolgirls cannot afford the pads. This grant will empower an African girl to stay healthy so that she can attend school full time, pursue her dreams and become a role model for young girls in her village.
This project needs to receive some pledges to go to the next level. Please check the "Financing" tab to see the list of current pledges. Once the amount pledged is equal to the project budget, the status of the project will be automatically changed to "Fully Pledged". Click here to pledge support for this project.
DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
