NO girl should ever use dangerous objects because she cannot afford sanitary pads

Pad Stories

Scarves, cut-out old t-shirts, toilet paper, newspapers, these are some of the measures girls that are living in impoverished areas have to resort to during their menstruation period on a monthly basis. Many live in poor families and often they cannot afford sanitary pads for their monthly periods.

“Some even miss school”

Some even miss school when in their menstruation period. This contributes to them being left behind in their studies which therefore affects their school performance. These girls do not even have the luxury of choice. The choice of pad, brand, length or size of pad.
