This is what we do

We deliver period purses to those in need


We’re all about action. With the support of generous partners, sponsors and individuals, we deliver PERIOD PURSES to those in need.


It starts with changing the way we talk about periods. We elevate the issue to eliminate the taboo through a growing network of secondary school, colleges and community chapters.


We raise awareness and create change through events, campaigns and media relationships. Help us repeal the tampon tax and lobby for menstrual products in public places.

Serving the Periods

We have 6 trained male teachers and 14 female teachers supporting 32 trained student-educators in 12 schools serving 1200 girls.

Africa sanitary pads market is projected to reach $779million by 2022 on account of growing awareneaa among women about hygiene during menstruation. This raises the per capita household disposable income and rapid urbanization as well as increasing women participation in the region’s labour force.

Studies have shown that there are thousands of women in need of effective menstrual products, and PadBank aims to become a bridge between donors, volunteers and these girls and therefore make these pads available to them.

Our mission is to educate and provide period purses to those in need
