Kgoshigadi is a social enterprise, which sets up mini-factories in over-looked communities and up-skills local women to manufacture and distribute affordable, bio-degradable sanitary pads. In doing so, Kgoshigadi enables these women to become business owners of their own social franchise, secure their own livelihoods and address menstruation-related absenteeism in high school girls.

Our business-in-a-box solution also hosts women’s health workshops, that are safe spaces for women to discuss issues affecting them and access information that is both reliable and factually accurate.

Kgoshigadi products do not negatively impact the land quality of the communities we support. Our bio-degradable product addresses the problem of menstrual waste management, given that it is estimated that a single woman will produce between 125kg-150kg of waste over her life time.
