Days for Girls began when the Founder and CEO Celeste Mergens was working with a family foundation and orphanage in the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya. Asking “What are girls doing for feminine hygiene?” Celeste learned that girls were sitting on cardboard for several days each month, often going without food unless someone would bring it to them. This set in motion her first intervention - disposable pads. But without any place to dispose of the pads, this was neither a viable nor a sustainable solution. So it was time for Plan B: a washable, long-lasting pad.
