We Create Impact Enterprise is a social business of manufacturing and selling reusable sanitary pads. The business aims to provide an accessible, appropriate and affordable way for school girls and low income women to manage their menstruation with dignity.

The A-star pad will be introduced to Ondangwa (Namibia) and entire Namibia and beyond borders as this is not just a Namibian problem but a global. Most sanitary pads in the Namibian market are too expensive for girls in the rural and township schools. Girls stay away from school or leave school before the end of the school day during their menstruation because they lack sanitary pads and some drop out due to the accumulation of lost school days. These girls use other unsafe options such as dry leaves, newspaper, t-shirt cloths and other materials which may lead to infectious diseases. A-star pad is an absorbent patch which patched with cotton very comfortable for the ladies to use and can be washed. The pads are therefore washable after use and that helps them go on with their daily activities normally and helps save their hard-earned money.
