UNICEF partnership: A milestone achievement

One of the most remarkable milestones in the journey of Our AIM Foundation’s women empowerment initiatives was the partnership with the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF). Through their relentless dedication, the foundation was able to supply 15,000 female sanitary pads.

Working day and night, the women poured their hearts and soul into meeting the demand, producing 15,000 high-quality sanitary pads within a month. Their relentless efforts paid off, and they were generously rewarded for their remarkable achievement. The financial support provided much-needed income for their families, allowing them to secure essentials such as food, and clothing, and even renovate their previously dilapidated homes. This moment of recognition not only boosted their morale but also validated their capabilities as empowered individuals capable of creating change.
