Our story in a nutshell
Be A Lady (B.A.L) is a bright new company that started in April 2017, through the help of DLI (Data for Local Impact). The B.A.L team was able to conduct a study throughout various districts in Dar Es Salaam to see if there is a problem with the availability adn accessibility of sanitary pads within there schools. We discovered that many of these young girls do not have the economic power to buy a full packet of sanitary pads. These leads them to use alterntive methods such as handkerchiefs, khangas and even newspapers. Due to this problem many young girls choose to stay home and not attend school til they are feeling better.
Thus the Bela Vendor was born, an automated sanitary pad dispenser that is located within the girls bathroom, allowing the female students to be away from prying eyes as they take care of their needs.
