Washable sanitary pads

Many girls lose schooling because they do not have sanitary pads to use during their periods.

Is there a tested manufacturing process/method for local people to make washable pads for their local community?

Hi Helen, have a look at Menstrual Hygiene Matters which has many useful examples and links on the topic. Module 3 is relevant for you, and so is the training (below on the same page).

Hello,

There is also a project in Uganda called Banapads making sanitary pads out of banana plant stems and then marketing them.

Hope this helps

Rob
