In particular, female students attending public schools are unable to purchase sanitary napkins due to financial reasons, which causes them to leak menstrual blood. many exist.

The society that LUNA sanitary products aim for
We are working to realize a society where all lives are blessed and ambitious students can continue to pursue their dreams.
In Tanzania, more than 6,000 students are said to have dropped out of school due to pregnancy, and the young pregnancy rate (ages 15 to 19) by region is nearly 30% on average.
A man who impregnates a student is punished with 30 years in prison, so many run away as soon as the pregnancy is discovered, and the girls become single mothers who can’t get financial support.
Students who become pregnant can be looked down upon by their classmates and neighbors, and in extreme cases, even their families may abandon them.
It is difficult to find a job that will hire mothers who do not have the qualification to graduate from junior high school and have children. There is a current situation.
In order to reach young single mothers all over Tanzania, we will create small sanitary napkin manufacturing factories in various places and create jobs.
By providing a community where people in the same situation can encourage each other, a daycare center, and a mechanism for
accumulating target funds, we will work together with local people to create a society that can support them in pursuing their dreams. About LUNA sanitary products
https://www.borderless-japan.com/social-business/luna-sanitarypads/ Representative comment
When I was a university student, I met a girl named Asia, who became a single mother of twins at the age of 16, when I was researching “Why children drop out of school”, and I learned deeply about the problems surrounding early pregnancy in Tanzania.
After that, I myself experienced pregnancy, childbirth, and the difficulty of balancing child-rearing and work as a single mother. Because of you, I was able to graduate from university without incident.
When I experienced the harsh reality of young single mothers in Tanzania and the privileged environment, I felt strongly that I wanted to support them as they persevered in an environment where my own efforts alone would not help. We are working with the desire to create an environment where they can live with peace of mind and continue to pursue their dreams.
We ask for your cooperation in helping to eliminate poverty by creating jobs and providing sex education to prevent future
