Heels4Pads Initiative

Heels4Pads Foundation operates predominantly in Kenya and was founded by us, Angela Waweru, Monicah Muhoya and Angela Wambui who run the SisterSpeaks Global Organisation (www.sisterspeaksglobal.org). We began the Foundation initially as a CSR project for SisterSpeaks Global but then went on to register it as a Kenyan Charity aimed at raising awareness of period poverty challenges currently being experienced by girls and women across Kenya.

During this season of Lockdown and challenges faced due to Covid19, the Kenyan Government has taken great measures to ensure the virus doesn’t spread nationally. However, poverty has exasperated and what were once low-income families have become no-income families this spreads from those in slums to arid regions in Kenya. As a result, there have been high cases of sexual transactions in exchange for pads, the crime rate is slowly increasing and families starving for they lack the financial power to ensure they not only have food but can also ensure they have basic amenities such as ensuring they have menstrual management products.

Heels4Pads Foundation has therefore continued over to support girls and women through the distribution of Covid19 Relief Care Package that includes Pads and non-perishable foods too like porridge, maize meal and dense pack products of rice and beans.

As schools have continued to be back on we are continuing with our mission to support girls with dignity kits which includes a minimum of x3 months supply worth of pads and/ or reusable pads, x2 panties, x2 soaps and x1 reusable mask. In addition, we facilitate a girls mentorship program and this also includes menstrual and age-appropriate sexual reproductive health talk.
