Check out this week’s episode for an interview with Shayna Fowler (@shayna_fowler), Founder & Executive Director of Khana Panties. Khana is on a mission to ensure every girl has the panties she needs to manage menstruation and stay in school—starting with Uganda.

Many girls drop out entirely once they start their period.Edited by Nightcall Sound - https://www.nightcallsound.com Check out Khana Panties on social media: https://khanapanties.com https://twitter.com/KhanaPanties https://www.instagram.com/khanapanties/ https://www.facebook.com/khanaunderwear/
