Transform­ing lives and ending period poverty.

We believe that a monthly period shouldn’t be a barrier for girls. It shouldn’t hinder them from attending school or cause embarrassment or shame.

At Kujuwa Initiative we train and support young people, families and educators in sexual reproductive health, rights and menstrual hygiene management.

We produce and donate washable sanitary pads by up-cycling fabric waste from our SOKO Kenya clothing factory, enabling girls to manage their periods safely.

Making a difference.

One million girls miss school in Kenya each month because they cannot afford sanitary pads. Your support enables the Kujuwa Initiative to tackle period poverty by empowering young women to reach their full potential.

We do this by:

Kujuwa pads

Producing washable sanitary pads using up-cycled fabric from our SOKO Kenya clothing factory and donating our Kujuwa kits to girls in school.

Girls in classroom

Providing training and support to young people, families and educators and building knowledge in sexual reproductive health, rights and menstrual hygiene management.

Toilet building

Sustaining menstrual hygiene management through the supply, installation and repair of water tanks, toilet blocks and hand washing stations.

Three ways to get involved

Help us to put an end to period poverty here in Kenya. Together we can make a real difference.
