GIRLS AND TEENS

In the last 5 years we’ve educated over 360,000 women and girls about menstruation, intimate hygiene, violence prevention, bullying and puberty. Through multiple initiatives, our aim is to break taboos and open a safe space for education. Learn about some of our efforts:

  • Our campaign with UNICEF, #HablemosTodo, aimed to spark dialogue and empowerment for women and girls in Mexico. We included messages on our packaging that encourage girls to talk about difficult things with their friends and mothers in order to normalize those important conversations. More than 7.5 million people were reached through social media and other channels, and approximately half of them were teenagers.

  • Thanks to our program “Mundo Saba Teens” we’ve impacted over 360,000 girls in 680 schools in Mexico by breaking taboos around menstruation and hygiene.

  • In 2015 we launched a guide for Parents and Teachers in Mexican schools, which aims to educate and support them about menstruation and hygiene.

  • We also worked together to bring feminine care products to several charitable organizations, including: Fraternidad Sin Fronteras, Fundación Inova Contigo, Alimentos Para Todos, Fundación Hogar Dulce Hogar, Centro de Atención a la Discapacidad Infantil la Gaviota, Laberinto de Sonrisas, among others.

  • The campaign “Bullying for Loving” reached 60 million girls in 8,500 schools in Colombia.

  • Through the “Hygiene is Our Right” Program, we’ve educated over 70,000 girls and women in Latin America on the importance of proper menstrual hygiene habits - including, handwashing and clean and safe restrooms in schools. Over the next 3 years, we’ll be educating over 4,000 students and 500 teachers and parents.

  • In August 2020, we teamed up with El Salvador Foundation to support their Back To School drive-thru event in LA. We gave away over 1,000 boxes including more than 226,900 Saba® products. These were handed out during the drive-thru to more than 5,000 vehicles and reached hundreds of teens and women in need.

  • Since 2018, we’ve shared our knowledge and experience about the importance of hygiene and health through our program Educational Volunteers. This program educates children, teens, parents and teachers in the Latin American communities in which we operate. Our aim is to educate about menstruation, incontinence, the importance of washing and drying your hands, wound care and thorough hygiene.
