How SHE (Sustainable Health Enterprises) Is Working To Help Women

In developing countries around the world, women and girls are missing crucial days of school and work because they lack the access to affordable maxi pads.  The current options for these women are both pricey and some ineffective.  Imported pads cost more than a day's wage, and their other alternatives are ineffective such as cloth rags, mud, and tree bark.  SHE has developed both a cost effective and eco-friendly menstrual pad that works.  These pads are a much more affordable option priced at 5 cents/pad.

SHE wants to break the taboo associated with menstruation and bring their menstrual pads to the women who need them most so they can avoid missing days of school and work.  You can help SHE with their goal of making this possible by sharing the video below, by following SHE on Twitter, by tweeting about SHE to your followers, and of course by helping make a donation to SHE to get more pads out to the girls and women who need them.
