Our Activity

What We Do

We strive to work hard every day to address the high levels of absenteeism in schools. Brand the subsequent early exit of female learners from the formal education system

Sanitary Pads

Mimi pads are designed with the woman’s form in mind. Not only are they incredibly comfortable, but they also provide great protection, giving you the confidence you need to celebrate who you are

Vending Machine

Our vending machine has come as another pillar of Mimi women; extensive research has been done on the daily frustrations women face regarding menstruation. One of the problems is that women cannot simply buy a single pad without having to buy a whole packet, further to that you cannot just buy one in a bathroom if it’s an emergency

Pads & Cents entreprise development

Pads and Cents is set to cultivate the mindset of independence while creating opportunties for young women to empower themselves. The programme creates entrepreneurs and change makers, rather than simply employees or frustrated jobseekers.
