KHANA IS ON A MISSION
To ensure every girl has the panties she needs to manage menstruation and stay in school—starting with Uganda.


While pads have become more accessible in the developing world, panties have not. 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.

CAN SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS A PAIR OF PANTIES KEEP GIRLS IN SCHOOL? 

Yes! And the possibilities extend beyond education. Menstrual hygiene interventions enable girls to overcome obstacles to their health and freedom such as child marriage and gender based violence, while increasing their chances of future employment and equal opportunity at large.

Education, employment, equal opportunity—that’s the possibility of just one pair.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
All Khana panties are ethically made in the country receiving them to create jobs and contribute to economic sustainability. Our panties are then distributed in Days for Girls Uganda kits, which include washable pads, menstruation education, and more! By supporting Khana, you are ensuring every girl has the panties she needs to manage menstruation and stay in school—starting with Uganda.


 
In full transparency, Khana is awaiting 501c3 status approval. This means donations are not currently tax-deductible. In the event that Khana's status is approved, our team will be able to backdate deductions to match the date each donation was made.
