    Reducing stress, empowering women

    Day 289

    Brand New Day

    There is a big need for sanitary pads in Bidi Bidi Refugee Settlement. But there’s no easy way for women to get them – and they’re a bit too pricey for most.

    As a result, every month women and girls face intense worry and marginalization. Some girls even drop out of school.

    Having access to quality reusable sanitary pads can revolutionize a woman’s experience getting her period every month. This was something we could help with.

    We set out to purchase reusable pads that last for an entire year and gave them to a group of women who were curious how it all worked.

    Everyone gathered together to get their gift, along with a quick how-to workshop.

    Goodbye worry, hello brand new day! Reusable sanitary pads are the gift that keeps on giving.

    These ladies are ready to take on the world knowing that they’ll be protected with just one small, discrete, yet powerful change – whenever they need it.

    This change made possible by Atomic Data.
