MIMI - Breaking Taboos to Empower Women.

Pssst... have you heard? MIMI has got girls and women across Africa talking about “the P-word”! Periods are natural, and nothing to be ashamed of - yet every month, girls in disadvantaged communities are forced to miss several days of school because they lack access to reliable sanitary products. MIMI wants to put a stop to this. We are a social enterprise that designs and distributes quality sanitary pads, helping girls to stay in school and get more from their education. We also have a non-profit company that handles donations, and a sales model that allows women to become agents selling the Mimi sanitary packs directly to their communities. We’ve been behind South Africa’s Girl Bosses since 2014, giving them the gift of confidence and comfort.

What’s Next for MIMI?

We are taking things to the next level, expanding into Africa to educate girls and end period shame, one pad at a time. We’re bringing new innovations with us too, like our MIMI Anytime Moment Vending Machines and Mimi Intimate range.

Our vision is to reach 100 000 African women and girls by 2020. Will you take the next step with us?
