Each training kit costs £40. It can be used again and again to train groups of up to twenty at a time. Each pack includes, scissors, needles, pins, templates, instruction manuals, teaching cards on menstruation, training DVDs all within a handmade bag which is shown above. Each pack also includes a hundred leaflets which can be given to girls when they leave the session so they can continue to make pads at home and teach other women and girls in their communities.
It costs around £6.50 to train each volunteer, covering the cost of transport, the facilities, providing a snack for the volunteers, presenting them with a certificate at the end of the training as well as giving each volunteer a pack. Each volunteer pack contains training instructions, two templates, some fabric, needles, thread, razor blades, pins, a plastic bag, buttons and a pen all within a plastic wallet. The volunteer packs can be seen above and are a gift to encourage participants to train others.
