The programme has benefited thousands of girls and boys across Kenya. It is keeping the girls in school, and preventing them from resorting to prostitution to pay for disposable pads. PadMad pads are made from 100% cotton and are entirely eco-friendly and significantly cheaper than alternatives. In turn, Madhvi has built her larger vision to make the programme self-sustaining, by empowering women at the heart of this social-entrepreneurial model. As part of its programme, PadMad and its partners generate employment for hundreds of women in underprivileged parts of Kenya that make these reusable sanitary pads.
