The Reusable Pads Project


Last week The Writing Center finished our second night of The Reusable Pads Project which was focused on making washable, reusable feminine hygiene products for young women in Uganda who frequently miss up to a week of school per month because of their cycles. We had so many teachers, students, and community members who came together for this cause. It was really heartwarming. Ultimately, we made 54 pads! which we will ship along with inserts and starter soaps.
