Profits from the WildHearts companies fund the work of the WildHearts Foundation to address economic injustice in an efficient and credible way.
Our latest initiative, StartHer in Health will distribute reusable sanitary pads to vulnerable school girls in South Africa, with the goal of keeping them in school during menstruation.
“A third of girls in South Africa miss school during menstruation.” – PLOS Medical Journal
The reusable sanitary pads have been developed by a team of passionate South African women. They have used their manufacturing and design expertise to create a premium quality pad, that will ensure girls can stay in school during menstruation, fulfil their potential and pursue their dreams.
“Our main objective when developing the pad was to achieve a safe and dignified value product, comfort, an aesthetically pleasing feminine design, all round efficacy that any girl would feel proud and secure to use, regardless of her station in life. We believe that we have done so.”
– Designer and Manufacturer
The pads come in a pack of 5. They will last up to 5 years and see girls through their important school years. These pads will be distributed to in need girls in some of the hardest to reach parts of rural South Africa, enabling them to stay in education (see attached image of pack of pads).
