Girls receiving their MyPads

International Women’s Day 2021

International Women’s Day is an annual celebration of the economic, social and cultural achievements of women, as well as highlighting the issues women are facing globally. The 2021 theme is ‘choose to challenge’, recognising that from challenge comes change.

The Mudeka Foundation has chosen to challenge period poverty. A plight disproportionately affecting women and girls which severely affects education and is often a taboo subject that more conversations must be held on. 

Since 2016 we have been providing girls and menstruating women in Zimbabwe with reusable pads (MyPads). Additionally we raised funds to sponsor a toilet block being built at the Muda school which enabled adolescent girls to attend schools safely. If you would consider donating, your money will go to projects that include MyPads.
