Kenyan clothing manufacturer partners with British fashion bigwigs to provide women with re-usable sanitary towels

The initiative will help many young women who are unable to access menstrual products.

In what they have termed The Kujuwa Initiative, SOKO and ASOS will develop washable and reusable sanitary towels for young women within this region.

How the sanitary towels will be made

The sanitary towels will be made from scraps of waste fabrics from ASOS Made In Kenya collections, sewn by local seamstresses.

The young women will be provided with two sanitary towels that have removable liners that last for up to three years, two cotton underwear, a bar of soap and a waterproof wash bag.

In addition to that the young women within this region that were forced to miss school due to lack of accessible menstrual products will also be provided with health education.

“Pupils receive hygiene and confidence training to ensure they are no longer placed at a disadvantage for simply having their period and have a greater understanding of what the monthly cycle means.”

To top it all off, schools within the region will have access to the WASH project.

The Wash project provides water tanks and toilets to areas where they are needed the most.
