ZanaAfrica Group
ZanaAfrica Group

ZanaA seeks sustainable solution to poverty for women through innovation. The cost of sanitary pads is a challenge for women & causes 800,000 Kenyan girls to miss 31.5 million learning days annually, leading to drop outs and repeating cycles of poverty. Locally manufactured low-cost, eco-friendly sanitary pads offer a sustainable solution. Distribution expanded to NGOs and women۪s groups keeps girls in school & profits in the villages. This model offers hope to women across the developing world.
Manufacturing high-quality, low-cost, eco-friendly sanitary pads for the bottom of the pyramid market in Kenya
