World Day of Social Justice

20th February 2023

World Day of Social Justice 2023 with its central theme of gender discrimination in the world helps to spotlight the link between period poverty and injustice.  The charity Power Of Pads is helping to address the pressing issue of period poverty, which affects millions of girls and women around the world.

Period poverty refers to the inability of individuals, especially girls and women, to afford menstrual products, leading to challenges such as missed education, limited access to work, and a lack of basic dignity and health. 

The charity Power Of Pads is working to address this issue by helping girls access reusable sanitary products, offering women the opportunity to start sanitary pad making businesses and raising awareness about the impact of period poverty on girls’ and women’s lives. 

Through its network of volunteers and partnerships with local organisations, Power Of Pads is reaching women and girls in communities within Kenya, providing them with the essential products they need to manage their periods with dignity and without interruption.  On World Day of Social Justice, the charity Power Of Pads is a great example of how people can come together to make a difference in the lives of others, helping to build a more just and equitable world, in which every woman has the dignity and support she needs to thrive.
