    Hello there,

    This is a small Malawian Social Enterprise set in beautiful Nkhata Bay, Northern Malawi. Nkhata Bay is situated right at lake Malawi.

    We produce re-usable sanitary pads and diapers and are active in the provision of menstrual hygiene and reproductive health training for schoolgirls. The things you could get involved in here are endless: Research, education, product development, social media, graphic design, marketing, capacity building, and photography.

    I'm looking for 1 to 2 people who would like to stay with us for a longer term (at least a month) and really get stuck into activities with us! You would be working alongside some brilliant Malawian women who are experienced in producing the pads and diapers, as well as holding menstrual hygiene management workshops. Depending on your background and interests there is a huge range of things you can do.

    Feel free to send me a message if you'd like more information.

    All the best!
