Khana Panties Make Education Possible

Check out this week’s episode for an interview with Shayna Fowler (@shayna_fowler), Founder & Executive Director of Khana Panties.  Khana is on a mission to ensure every girl has the panties she needs to manage menstruation and stay in school—starting with Uganda.

Without panties to hold pads in place, over 8 million girls in Sub-Saharan Africa miss up to one week of school every month. Many girls drop out entirely once they start their period.
