Meet Our Charity Partner: KHANA PANTIES
CAN SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS A PAIR OF PANTIES KEEP GIRLS IN SCHOOL?
Education, employment, equal opportunity—that’s the possibility of just one pair.
Khana is a Buy One, Give One underwear brand on a mission to help girls in the developing world manage menstruation and stay in school. They use panties to help girls overcome period-related absences and school dropout.
We believe when a girl's basic needs are met, she can focus less on surviving in the world and more on transforming it.- Shayna Fowler (Founder of Khana)
This incredible organization uses the tool of access to empower young girls to continue their educational path.
While women in the States likely have access to feminine hygiene products, most girls in Uganda don’t. In regions where girls cannot access or afford feminine hygiene products, they use mud, rags, or leaves to stop the bleeding. Of course, this causes severe discomfort and even infection.
In collaboration with their Giving Partners, they designed a period-proof panty to help Ugandan girls stay in school.
Khana manufactures 100% of their period-proof panties in Uganda to create jobs and contribute to economic sustainability and then distributed directly to schools.
For the month of April, ELEOS will be donating 10% of our profits to help fund the makers and materials of Khana.
Join Us. Let's keep our girls in school.
