Many girls in Africa miss 3-5 days of school each month because they cannot afford sanitary pads.

Most girls eventually end up dropping out of school altogether.

Its just another day - PERIOD

Palesa Reusable Pads can be used for up to 5 years, for less than 20% of the cost of disposable pads.
For many families, basic survival is a priority and there simply isn't enough money in the budget to buy pads every month.

Reusable Sanitary Pads by Palesa Pads™ provide a sustainable solution for up to 5 years which is a girl's high school career. Palesa Pads can, of course, be worn by women as well.
The tremendous savings on sanitary products contribute to the financial well-being of their families.
Palesa Pads are also better for the environment in that they do not contribute to landfill as is the case with disposable pads. The pads are simply washed and reused each month.

Too many things in life are hard but your periods shouldn't be one of them.


The pads are made by African women, helping to create employment in South Africa.

We are based in Johannesburg but are available to distribute Palesa Reusable Pads throughout Africa.
