Comfort in change: Victoire's postpartum experience with Agateka pads

17 Apr 2024

Partout au Burundi, nos programmes permettent aux communautés de vivre une vie saine et d’améliorer leurs conditions de vie.


Victoire Butoyi is a dedicated user of the Agateka reusable sanitary pad. She joined the Dufashanye VSLA on Gasaka Hill in Makamba, aiming to learn about menstrual health and hygiene and gain access to reliable sanitary products.

The purpose of the VSLA is for members to pool money for various projects, including the Agateka project. When I joined the group, I contributed a certain amount of money towards the collective purchase of sanitary pads. I received a pack of 'Agateka' reusable sanitary pads right as I was preparing for childbirth. These pads were invaluable during my postpartum period. I felt comfortable and secure, without the fear of staining my clothes. It was a significant improvement over using pieces of cloth as I had done after previous deliveries."

Victoire extends her gratitude and a call to action:

I am thankful to SaCoDé for enhancing the hygiene of women and girls during their menstrual cycles. I encourage all women to consider using the Agateka pad after childbirth!
