Pad-Up Africa is a non-profit organisation established in 2017 born out of passion and a sense of responsibility toward curbing the deficits knowledge gap and skills set on good menstrual hygiene management among adolescent girls and women in Africa.
Perturbed by UNESCO findings that one out of ten girls in sub-Sahara Africa misses school due to menstruation, Pad-Up Africa through sanitary sensitization has continued to device practical ways to change the narrative within the shortest possible time.
We envisage an Africa where adolescent girls and women would not be segregated due to menstruation and an Africa where adolescent girls and women do not suffer the ills of poor sanitary health practice.
We are poised to ensure that adolescent girls and women in Africa are exposed to the health hazards of unhealthy menstrual hygiene materials and practices. Also empower them through sanitary sensitization and donation of sanitary pads.
