Dignity Period works with trusted partners to promote access to menstrual hygiene management supplies and education for girls in the Tigray region of in Ethiopia. They provide funds to Mekelle University to conduct research, purchase the pads from the Mariam Seba Sanitary Products Factory, and distribute the pads to girls in schools.
The Mariam Seba Sanitary Products Factory makes simple, effective menstrual pads. They are low cost, environmentally friendly, washable, and reusable. Mariam Seba pads are special because they last for 12-18 months. They are comfortable and made of cotton with a waterproof lining so they are reliable and leak-free. The pads are easy to launder and highly affordable; they cost 85-90 percent less than commercially available single-use pads. They are also environmentally friendly as there is nothing to dispose of each month.
