Over 1,600 Girls to Receive Sanitary Pads
As part of our CSR initiative we are proud to announce the partnership between Sshhh Lingerie Boutique and PadUp Africa. PadUp Africa is a not-for-profit organization aimed at providing menstrual sanitary pads and sensitization on menstrual hygiene to less privileged girls in Government secondary schools and IDP camps in various rural communities.
PadUp has been able to distribute sanitary pads to over 1600 girls in Government schools in Abuja. These girls constitute only 3 out of the 62 schools in the Federal Capital Territory. Statistics show that each of the Government Secondary schools have at least 1400 girls in Senior School that are already mature enough to experience their regular menstrual cycles.
As part of our initiative we donate a percentage of our sales to the organization which will provide sanitary pads to over 50 girls monthly. That means every time YOU purchase an item from US you are supporting young girls stay in school and be confident in themselves while going through the normal menstrual cycle.
