Mission Statement


PridePads Africa, Inc. produces biodegradable, earth friendly and affordable locally manufactured sanitary pads for girls and women in rural Cameroon. The organization also provides menstrual health education, sensitization and de-stigmatization campaigns surrounding menstruation. Pads are produced by and for women, creating livelihood empowerment and entrepreneurial economic opportunities for ordinary Cameroonian girls and women who are fully engaged in the distribution chain of the finished product as well as in the supply of banana and plantain fiber (an agricultural byproduct) for the manufacturing of the pads.

Barriers to Education


When our daughters reach adolescence we embrace it.  We celebrate it.  We support them during this critical time as they navigate their way into womanhood.  We hope they realize their potential. We hope they understand they can pursue their dreams. We assume….. we don’t think about menstruation as being a barrier to education but it can be and it is.  To thousands of girls throughout Africa and other developing countries this barrier exists. Join PridePads in our mission to empower girls and keep them in school to ensure a brighter future. 

The Difference Between a Broken Community and a Thriving One is the Presence of Women Who Are Valued


We believe that every girl, no matter where she lives, deserves the opportunity to embrace being a woman and contribute in meaningful ways to her community.
PridePads manufactures and distributes biodegradable sanitary pads and provides menstrual health education to rural communities in Cameroon. We want girls to realize their full potential by staying in school and no longer living with the stigmas and taboos attached to menstruation.


When girls receive our biodegradable pads, they are able to stay in school and that gives them choices.  They can choose to work.  They can choose to marry.  They can choose their husband.  With equal education girls can thrive.
