Sheebah Karungi aka Team No Sleep is changing the face of sanitary pads in Uganda. The singer and social entrepreneur just started her own sanitary pads company to support women.
She came up with this brilliant idea to support the female gender four years ago and through her company ‘Sheebah Establishments Company’, Sheebah has started manufacturing ‘Holic Pads’ to support women. What makes her such a breath of fresh air is that Sheebah is planning on hiring 80% of women once the headquarters open up.
“Holic Pads isn’t just going to be Pads, it is going to be a company that empowers women. My company will hire 80% of qualified women once our headquarters open up. I want to change lives and show the world that we have qualified women who can do the same things as men but don’t get the opportunities to. I want to empower kids; I want everyone to live a life that they dream of.”
She further reveals that she hopes to raise awareness about menstrual health, also reaching out to kids who can not afford to buy pads.
