In 2008, four MIT students headed to Rwanda with a blender in their backpacks. What they came away with was a sustainable plan to tackle an urgent, global problem: girls’ and women’s lack of access to affordable menstrual pads.
The Only The Brave Foundation is now supporting SHE in a start-up project in Rwanda.
The project consists in the production and distribution of 180,000 pads to 3,000 school girls. Allowing them to continue attending school even during their period, and providing work for several people.
