Pink Panty Gives Back
WHAT OUR DREAMS ARE MADE OF
Period poverty is an overwhelming concept in Africa; 1 in 10 girls miss school because they don’t have access to sanitary products, or because there aren’t safe, private toilets to use at school; In Kenya alone, approximately 50% of school-age girls do not have access to sanitary products.
Since the launch of PINK PANTY, period poverty and plastic waste has been a crucial cause to us,
this is why our company was created.
We truly believe that every woman in the world should not experience any discomfort and shame when menstruating. Our vision of corporate social project is very pragmatical, we want our actions to be impactful, and because of the nature of our brand, it is our duty to help end period poverty, this is why we work with dedicated human sized organisations.
This has been in the works for months, and we can’t wait to soon bring sustainable period underwear and menstrual education to the Maasai girls and women of the Kuku Group Ranch in Kenya.
OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE 300 GIRLS AND WOMEN WITH 600 REUSABLE PERIOD PANTIES!
FOR EVERY PINK PANTY PACK SOLD, ONE PAIR OF UNDERWEAR IS DONATED TO THE WOMEN OF KUKU!
"I DREAM OF EDUCATING THE NEXT GENERATION"
MWCT supports over 9000 students. Before MWCT – only 1 out of 10 students were girls. Now more than half the students are girls! Retention is now MWCT's primary goal. In the Maasai culture, menstruation is still taboo, even within families. Access to sanitary products is limited and for most, unaffordable. When girls have their period, they miss school, and a lack of hygienic solutions can lead to increased health issues.
For the next generation of Maasai to prosper, menstrual hygiene management is paramount. By providing reusable @pinkpantyofficiel period underwear and @themabelfoundation menstrual education, we are working with @mwct_kenya to keep girls in school and help them achieve their dreams.
"I DREAM OF BECOMING A DOCTOR"
MWCT @mwct_kenya supports 5 local health facilities in Southern Kenya and employs the only doctor serving the Kuku Group Ranch community. They have also established the first laboratory in the area and provide mobile lab services to various rural communities.
Reusable period underwear and menstrual education help empower girls within their communities to stay in school and follow their dreams to become doctors.
"I DREAM OF BECOMING A PILOT"
Less than 5% of pilots are women across the world. Women like Kenyan Airline Captain Koki Mutungi @mskoki are a true inspiration to girls and women wanting to get into aviation. She was the first female on the African continent certified as a Captain of the Boeing 787 "Dreamliner" aircraft. With increased access to menstrual care and education, this dream can become a reality for Massai women.
"I DREAM OF FINISHING SCHOOL"
1 in 10 girls in Africa miss school when they have their periods (UNESCO).
Missing school can result in girls falling behind their peers and often leads to girls dropping out altogether.
By providing reusable @pinkpantyofficiel period underwear and @themabelfoundation menstrual education, we are working with @mwct_kenya to keep girls in school and help them achieve their dreams.
