We at The Pad Project are grateful for our partners on the ground who help monitor and ensure the success of each program. Thanks to your contributions, The Pad Project has placed six pad machines in different regions in India and implemented a reusable cloth pad-making program in Sierra Leone. We are working to install a semi-automated pad machine in Afghanistan and to launch a reusable cloth pad-making program in Guatemala. The Pad Project is combating period poverty in the U.S. by hosting menstrual hygiene donation drives in the greater Los Angeles area and providing grassroots organizations with microgrants to purchase bulk menstrual supplies. With your help, we hope to place machines in India, Kenya, Nepal, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, and Uganda in 2020!

OUR NGO PARTNERS
The Pad Project has partnered with PoP to implement a reusable cloth pad-making program in the Zona Reina region of Guatemala. The project will teach PoP staff and local teachers how to make reusable pads with cloth and sewing kits. Teachers will then work with their students, both boys and girls, to create reusable pads. Students will be able to create their own pads, which will help them manage their periods.
The project will serve an estimate of 600 students in two schools and provide training to them, as well as 30 teachers, on how to use the reusable pads. Our collective goal is that this reusable cloth pad-making program will expand to different schools in the community and create sustainable social change by increasing access to menstrual hygiene products.
