In the campaign that she started around a week ago, Nyanzi has attracted various players to the campaign and the latest to join are two local companies that deal in producing re-usable pads who have assured Nyanzi of their support.
The companies which are located in Masaka District decided to give the pads to Stella Nyanzi and team at a low cost which has helped her and the team to purchase more than what was expected.
“Two more local producers of low-cost sanitary pads are partnering with #Pads4GirlsUg to give free sanitary pads to poor girls so that they do not miss school during menstruation. These two local providers are joining Eco-Pads which supplied us with low-cost re-useable sanitary pads and Sweet Day which provided low-cost disposable sanitary pads. The two new partners are AfriPads and Shuya Pads. “ Said Nyanzi
The CEO of Shuya Pads Ltd went ahead to donating three cartons of anion pads to the Stella Nyanzi team in addition to the samples of Shuya panty-liners.
