“Brighter Brains Humanist Sanitary Pad Factory” is a sustainability project of the African Women’s Dignity Foundation, a women’s collective in Kasese, Uganda

Affordable, washable, reusable sanitary pads are necessary to keep Ugandan girls in school. Many girls in Africa drop out when they hit puberty because they cannot afford sanitary pads, so they stay at home to avoid embarrassment.

The budget for this project is:

Treadle Manual Sewing machines (6) ———— 2,460,000 Uganda shillings

Factory space rental for 10 months —————— 480,000 shillings

Purchase of materials ————————————- 420,000 shillings

Training ——————————————————— 40,000

TOTAL $1,000 US
