Tabitha Nakholi ’22 (MA), founder of the Wezesha Binti Foundation and a recent graduate of the Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies’ Master of Arts in Social Innovation (MASI), has always believed strongly in helping those in need. 

The Keyan native recently finished second out of more than 40 teams from around the world in the 2022 Fowler Global Social Innovation Challenge Global Finals showcase, which took place last month at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice. 

The Wezesha Binti Foundation aims to address period poverty for girls and women in Kenya. Period poverty is a lack of access to menstrual products, education, hygiene facilities and waste management. Estimates suggest it affects more than 500 million people worldwide.

Nakholi’s solution is to create a menstrual care kit called the Binti Box, which contains feminine products that will be made by Kenyan women for Kenyan women.
