Stage 5: Scaling

Lawino Kagumba and Megan White of American Friends of ZanaAfrica in the U.S. will work with collaborators in Kenya to develop and test sanitary pads that utilize an agricultural by-product as an alternative absorbent material. If successful, low-income women and girls will have access to locally produced affordable feminine hygiene products.
