Power Of Pads is run by four UK based Trustees and we’re committed to helping girls access reusable period pads and offer women the opportunity to start period pad-making projects and businesses.
Two of our Trustees were previously involved in another charitable project, financially supporting a healthcare clinic in rural western Kenya where thousands of people were treated over the course of fifteen years.
A few years ago they started a small pilot project, providing washable reusable period pads to girls there. The pads were made by volunteers in the UK and taken by the Trustees and hand delivered to schoolgirls most in need. Following the success of this project and the obvious huge demand for pads, we developed our efforts into our work at Power Of Pads. The pads are now made in the local communities in Kenya and distributed to the most needy girls.
