Ever wondered how a piece of paper takes the form you see it in? Can you imagine how it could
be produced from water hyacinths for sanitary pads production in Kenya? If these questions get
you thinking, feel the urge to brainstorm about it and realize the ideas in real life then we have
a new volunteering project for you to participate in!
Engineers without Borders Gothenburg group is recruiting new members for an upcoming
volunteering project with the Zingira organization in Kenya. This will be the second joint
venture the group is taking on and this time we will focus on the paper making process from
water hyacinths. As Zingira’s aim is to start producing sanitary pads from paper, the current
production process of the latter needs to be improved in order to fulfill the quantity demand of
paper for sustainable sanitary pad production. The organization itself has a strong brand of
handmade products, so the entire process should remain to be treated by hand.
The development of such process serves the greater purpose of helping young girls to have a
better environment in embracing womanhood, benefits natural living conditions and advance
sexual education awareness. This goes along with the purpose of the association Engineers
without Borders to contribute to a better world through sharing their engineering and science,
entrepreneurship and project expertise.
Thus, the project “Paper Production for Sanitary Pads in Kenya” is looking for new member with
a wide variety of skills. Whether you want to contribute to:
- technical development with your mechanical, chemical, production or bioengineering
- a little bit of everything,
we urge you to apply! We are looking for 4+ people to join the initiation and will be open to
complementary members throughout the project process.
The most important features we would appreciate are:
- interest in creating a change for the better
- availability to devote some of your time for the greater good for developing countries
- sharing your skillset in purpose of the volunteering project.
