What started as an idea, turned into a passion project which led to a social enterprise.
Our co-founders Shubhangi Rana and Jesselina Rana started Pad2Go in October 2018 after having understood the grim reality and obstacles that menstruating individuals have to face across Nepal. As a result of their own share of experiences while growing up in a society where menstruating girls were treated differently and looked down upon, they strongly believe that no future generation should be adversely affected because of archaic perceptions around menstruation.
We believe all individuals should embrace who they are,
define their future, and change the world.
Pad2Go's mission is to challenge age old perceptions and obstacles around menstruation in an innovative way.
At Pad2Go, we envision a society that is not marred by social inequality. We believe that change starts today, for a better future tomorrow.
