Benjamin Family Initiative (BFI) is an NGO committed to fostering social and economic development by providing training, education, and career development opportunities to underprivileged communities, with a focus on promoting sustainable and long-term growth.


The Equal Pad Initiative (EPI) is a women empowerment program dedicated to promoting menstrual health and hygiene among underprivileged young women. 

EPI recognizes that without access to hygienic menstrual products, these women are at a higher risk of health complications. By providing them with the necessary resources, EPI aims to ensure that every woman can manage her periods with dignity and respect.

Why Equal Pad Initiative?

  • Lack of access to affordable and reliable sanitary pads.
  • Lack of knowledge about menstrual health and hygiene is a common issue in remote areas.
  • Remote areas may lack proper sanitation facilities which makes it challenging for young women to manage their periods hygienically and with dignity.
  • Lack of government programs or initiatives focused on menstrual hygiene support for underprivileged women.
  • Many remote areas lack stores that sell sanitary pads,  and even when available, they may be too expensive for underprivileged women to afford.
