The African Adventure

During a trip to Kenya, Marie meets Dixon, headmaster of a slum school in Nairobi. He explains to her that girls don't go to school when they have their periods for lack of sanitary pads. Marie tells him about her washable sanitary napkins and he is excited about the idea. They set up a pilot project together in Dixon's school.
This is the beginning of BeautyWaps for Girls' Education with the creation of a local workshop with Racheal, coordinator of the action in Kenya, and Susan, seamstress. Thus the commercial activity and the philanthropic activity of BeautyWaps develop side by side, and thousands of young girls receive hygiene kits which allow them to continue their education every day of the month.
