RADA MiPad

MiChoice. MiFuture. MiLife.®

RADA is aware that even though girls make the responsible choice to attend and finish their schooling, this is often a challenge when they are on their monthly cycle.  Research shows –

  • Girls can miss up to five days of school per month each month.  That equates to nearly 60 days per year.  Of the 197 school days, some girls only attend 137 days.  That’s a lot of lessons lost.
  • Even though education contributes to a woman’s self-esteem and confidence, the lack of appropriate sanitary towels can push menstruating girls out of school thereby increasing the school dropout rate.
  • Tampons, pads and panty liners along with their packaging and individual wrapping generate more than 200,000 tons of waste per year and they all contain plastic. Pads are around 90% plastic. The average user throws away approximately 125kgs to 150kgs of tampons, pads and applicators in their lifetime.

RADA is all about empowerment.  We have designed and manufactured our own brand of reusable sanitary pads (RADA MiPad), with a life span of approximately five years.  Not only will this assist in keeping a girl in class for her high school years but it will also help alleviate the financial burden faced by households who can now exclude expensive sanitary pads from their monthly shopping.

The RADA MiPad Project is aimed at creating a positive and lasting impact on the lives of young girls, enabling them to complete their education and promoting their self-esteem and sense of equality.
