Our Trustees, Moira and Angie, along with Mercy, visited Supreme Malawi this week. Based in Nkhata Bay, this social enterprise makes reusable sanitary products and is expanding into related items. They use materials and equipment sourced in Malawi from other Malawian businesses. They employ a core staff of nine tailors and one operational manager, taking on extra day workers to respond to particular busy times.
Beatrice, Team Leader, and a Malawian woman who has been on the staff from the beginning showed us how the pads are made from cutting the fabric to the finished and packaged product. We are delighted to provide these pads to our girls in schools in North Malawi.
Supreme also provides workshops for schools about menstruation management. Contact them for a quote – they only cover their costs; this is not a profit-making activity.
