In 2013, two teachers, Allison Karnes of N. Muskegon, Michigan, USA and Ingeborg Roth of Aalesund, Norway, teamed up to create WRAPS; a sanitary pad for the schoolgirls of Ethiopia. During the school year, they travel to the real middle schools and meet with 5-8th-grade girls teaching them about menstruation, feminine hygiene and how to take care of their new WRAPS.
WRAPS are Washable, Reusable, Affordable sanitary Pads.
WRAPS are made of 100% cotton cloth. Each school kit contains 6 pads, a new pair of panties, along with one small waterproof purse for the girls to carry their WRAPS to and from school.

The Wolaitta Village project goals are to create sustainable businesses within the Wolaitta Community that will generate income for their children’s homes. Our dream is to offer free WRAPS kits to every middle school girl within the Wolaitta Zone of approximately 3 million people.
WRAPS utilizes a four-prong approach to help eliminate the inherent disadvantages that women face in Ethiopia.
