A Step Toward Freedom!

This adorable fabric might not look like a freedom-flag for women's empowerment, but it is! For women and girls in the slum areas of Kathmandu, Nepal who cannot afford American-style feminine products, this waterproof cloth can provide the freedom to attend school or work and to avoid isolation and missed opportunities for income and education. For the past several months, our colleagues in Nepal have been gathering a group of 38 village women together to teach a wide range of topics that affect women's health. Their most recent endeavor is to teach the group how to make homemade, reusable sanitary pads. They plan to expand the program to the remote Himalayan villages very soon! Our amazing volunteers are the true freedom-fighters for women!


Simple, reusable, discreet, and sanitary pads!
