*about us*

Through innovation and leveraging the power of technology, PadHer is enhancing the quality of life of menstruators across the continent of Africa. 

PadHer, as a social enterprise, reinvests its profits towards fighting period poverty in Africa. We are visionaries and disruptors who are vehemently committed to gender equality and building confidence in women and girls. We are doing ordinary things in extraordinary ways. 

PadHer is women-led and headquartered in Lagos, Nigeria, with offices in Nairobi, Kenya.

At PadHer, we see an Africa where our young girls are secure in their future, have the freedom to choose their path and live the life they desire.

Our Hybrid Model

PadHer operates as a non-profit organization and as a social enterprise

As a non-profit, PadHer provides innovative ways to keep young African schoolgirls in underserved communities in school and educate them on periods and puberty while making sanitary pads free and accessible. 

On the other hand, as a social enterprise, PadHer manufactures and sells TENS devices and high-quality, low-cost reusable sanitary pads and uses the profit made from selling them to help fight period poverty in Africa. For every pad PadHer sells, it donates a free reusable sanitary pad to a young African schoolgirl who can not afford one. As a social enterprise, PadHer is also making period education inclusive by donating one comic book to a young African schoolgirl in an underserved community for every comic book sold.


Keep young African girls in school while making period education inclusive and sanitary pads free and accessible for those who can’t afford them. 


Building An Africa Free Of Period Poverty.
