Rotary Hygiene and Sanitation
Social Enterprise (ROHSSEL)

In 2020, the Rotary Hygiene and Sanitation Social Enterprise (ROHSSEL) was established in Uganda, East Africa, as a collaborative effort sponsored by The Rotary Club of West Vancouver Sunrise, The Rotary Club of Kampala Nsambya, Rotary International, The Rotary Foundation Canada, and Clubs in District 5040 and District 9211.

 

This initiative, in partnership with Candle Light Foundation, was an extension of Candle Light High School, with a clear mission: to empower girls and women through menstrual hygiene education and sanitation training while producing eco-friendly reusable sanitary pads known as 'EnviroPADS' under the Rotary Hygiene and Sanitation Social Enterprise (ROHSSEL)

Today, our Social Enterprise proudly presents 'EnviroPADS,' a unique brand of reusable sanitary pads designed to provide comfort, affordability, and sustainability to girls and women in need. Our goal is to break down the barriers that keep girls out of school during their menstruation by providing the knowledge, resources, and products they need for a brighter, uninterrupted educational journey.

Be Our Ambassador in your Community, County, and join us in our mission to make a difference. Together, we are ensuring that every girl has the opportunity to pursue her education confidently and without interruption.
