The DFG Solution, You can count on!

Working with women has enabled us to develop a product-based supply of reusable sanitary pads, as we are well aware that many women and girls cannot afford to buy pads and resort to unsustainable, and unsafe methods during their period. This further has a negative effect as this group is often left behind in school or in life in general in comparison to their peers who can afford.

It is in this regard, we have partnered with Days for Girls (DfG) by manufacturing and supplying these beautiful menstrual health products’ that are built to last to both local and international clients who wish to support girls in our country, Eswatini, but do not know how. Together with DfG, we provide a locally driven sustainable source of menstrual health kits and menstrual health education to reach every girl child, Everywhere, Period. We are dedicated to strengthening women and girl’s sense of dignity and self-esteem by making sustainable feminine hygiene solutions and health education available in Eswatini.

The Days for Girls (DfG) Pad is a washable, reusable, beautiful menstrual health product that’s built to last. Its patented design, which includes a protective shield and absorbent liner, is backed by the latest menstrual health research and a decade of feedback from women around the world. It is a truly sustainable solution that menstruators count on month after month, for up to three (3) years

    Our Social Impact and Sustainability Practices

    To date, and in collaboration with Days for Girls, we have managed to reach 24,000 in-school girls with the washable pad and MH education. These are girls who some would have missed days of school because they did not have access to sanitary pads. Basically, our social enterprise supports women and girls who lack access to these essential products during their period.
