Currently, all reusable pads from She for She are produced by Ugandan women in Kampala, and from the Ugandan village Mateete. She for She collaborates with the organization GIRL CHILD ADVOCACY INITIATIVE, which is an organization that, among other things, teaches women how to operate sewing machines. Through this collaboration, we will be able to create and offer jobs to the women the organization as empowerment is at the core of our objective. The women then receive necessary training and obtain skills in order to produce our reusable pads and are able to sustain their families through the work.
The reason why our target group is women is due to their role in their household seeing as they’re financially responsible for the whole family. Thus, our focus is on empowering these women through employment.
She for She’s employees work from 8am to 6pm from Mon-Sat. There is a lunch break for half an hour and tea break at 10am every day. Maternity leave is for 3 month for mothers once they have given birth. The salary is based on the same salary that a seamstress would receive in Uganda as we do not want to compete with competitors and create unnatural market conditions. Additionally we reward our employees with bonuses.
