Instead of sanitary pads they may use unhygienic old cloths, leaves, moss and ashes. This not only causes discomfort, but they also risk severe infections and risks of 'accidents'. Girls’Gear is a Social Enterprise initiative supported by Greenfields Africa; an established UK charity which works to relieve the misery of poverty among the people of Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Girls’ Gear kit is developed for schoolgirls in Africa who can’t afford sanitary protection.
Girls’ Gear lives up to our high standards of efficiency and effectiveness
and gives girls the freedom to attend school regardless of the time of the month. A step along the way to empowerment of women .
