The S H E school uniform

Our signature dress is the world's only school uniform that grows 6 sizes and up to 12" in length so girls can attend school for years without fear of outgrowing their required school uniforms.

reusable menstrual pads

We recycle 100% of fabric waste from our factories into our unique reusable menstrual pads. In 2021, S H E produced over 5,000 reusable menstrual pads for girls in Togo.

recycled plastic backpacks

*NEW* in 2022. We collect single use plastic bags (just like the ones you get at the grocery store) and fuse them together to make durable, waterproof backpacks for our girls.

The dress that grows

Just months after giving school uniforms to the first girls in our program, we ran into a problem: girls were outgrowing their school uniforms multiple times each school year and couldn't afford replacements.

 

Together with our students, we designed a solution: a dress that grows six sizes and up to a foot in length. The dresses are designed to grow with a girl over 3 years, and they adjust in the areas where a girls' body changes most to create a tailored fit for every body type at every stage of growth.

Our menstrual pads

Period poverty prevents millions of girls from attending school each month. In Togo, only 35% of girls continue their education beyond elementary school, with many dropping out of school when they reach puberty. 

We shred and recycle 100% of our fabric scraps in our factories into our reusable menstrual pads. Much like our school uniforms, our pads have gone through years of wear-testing and redesigning to create the S H E pads our students know and love today!

What our students Are Saying

Afi, Age 8

Because I have a S H E uniform, I can go to school every day.  My dream is that some day I will be able to start a business to help support my family.
