Our vision is to transform health and wellness products and services available to women, in a way that delivers all-empowering economic and social value.
At Kgoshigadi, we believe there is an all-empowering solution to the realities that women and girls face. We have identified a scalable and sustainable solution to the challenge of the high-cost of access to safe and hygienic sanitary products.
Sanitary Pad Manufacturing Business-In-A-Box
Our mission is to transform current sanitary pad collection initiatives into profitable business opportunities through the sales of our social franchise mini-factories that provide economic empowerment and eco-friendly, affordable sanitary products to women in low income communities.
A single Kgoshigadi mini-factory can be up and running within a week of set up and creates full time employment for 5 women, with an additional 15-20 women acting as distribution agents. Up to 5 000 women and girls in the surrounding communities of a Kgoshigadi mini-factory can supplied with an affordable and eco-friendly sanitary product.

As part of the franchise agreement, Kgoshigadi provides our employees with sanitary pad manufacturing machinery, raw materials, business and production skills training, marketing and brand support.
Biodegradable and Affordable Sanitary Pads.
The average woman creates between 125kg-150kg of feminine product waste over her lifetime; normally this causes serious environmental degradation, as normal pads are not biodegradable.
Our innovative production process and machinery can produce 40,000 biodegradable pads per month, in each mini-factory we set up.
Our pads are made using an innovative combination of natural fibres and agricultural waste. This combination is converted into hygienic raw material; and thus, guarantees the production of affordable and safe feminine hygiene products - that ALL women can afford.
Each pack of sanitary pads is made using the highest quality processes and standards in a sanitary manufacturing environment.

Women’s Health, Education and Information Programmes.
We believe healthy womanhood and wellness begins with informed choices. We prioritise consumer education, as well as information and wellness programmes that will not only break the taboos surrounding menstruation, but also build trust and sustained well-being in women and girls across Africa.
Our women’s health information programmes are created with the expert input and experience of qualified medical healthcare professionals.
