Mae Maze + Mela For Her

Last year Mae was invited to participate in a project in Ethiopia to help improve a small factory that creates garments made with traditional fabrics.
.
There, in Addis Ababa is where she met Imma. An amazing person with an incredible project. Its aim is that every Ethiopian girl and woman is empowered to manage her menstruation safely, with confidence and without shame.
For this reason she created Mela For Her. Mela is an Amharic word meaning “solution”.  The perfect name for a social start-up that is starting to produce affordable period pads and underwear with sustainable materials to ensure access and availability without compromising the environment.
.
At this moment Mae is also helping them to set up the workshop, create new products and teaching the workers and providing guidance related to productions and costings.
