Fund A PAD For Our Rural Women And Girls by shrinkchido(f): 9:01am On Jun 28
Fund a PAD Menstrual Initiative was created to enable us to help people in need by supplying re-usable menstrual pad kits. This is a 100% volunteer run initiative which is funded by donations. We donate our menstrual pads kits to contacts and organizations in Nigeria and West Africa ensuring they reach those that need them the most.

We currently need to fund and make 1000 menstrual kits that are needed by January 2022 and expect that figure to reach well over 3000 in the coming months. I have been funding these kits myself for a while now however the demand now far exceeds my ability to financially and physically supply these. Within 4 weeks of launching The Menstrual Movement Initiative we have gone from needing 200 kits to just over 800!!

To fully fund a kit it costs us approx

$25 Basic Pad Kit (includes pads and bag)
$40 Complete Pad Kit (includes pads, soap, underwear, wash cloth, bag)

These kits provide one girl, woman or menstruator enough washable sanitary pads for full time use and will last approx 6 mdonths.

What will we use this money for exactly? While we have received some donated fabric to help make the kits we also need to raise funds to purchase not only more fabric but also the following:

Underwear, laundry soap and personal soaps, washcloths, waterproof bags, more cutting, running costs and sewing supplies (scissors, cottons, ribbons, needles etc).

These kits are essential for those that do not have access to sanitary products not only in Nigeria but other west African states.

Our mission is to empower, educate and support menstruating humans in West Africa. Working together to remove the stigma around periods and create a period positive movement. To do this we need support so we can continue supplying pads kits and supporting those in the community also doing amazing work in the fight against period poverty around Africa.

Our target we are aiming for will allow us to provide approx 800 fully funded Complete Pad Kits and 400 Basic Kits. For those that would like to volunteer sewing pads or sanitary kits, email us via fundapadinitiative@gmail.com
