Florence Akara

Managing Director

Florence Akara is the director of Femme International; a nonprofit serving nearly a decade of menstrual sexual reproductive health (MSRH) education, research and product distribution in East-Africa. MSRH status, in spite of investments/resources in the past decade, has been unsustainable. Through investing in a feminist social business model called “The Twende Initiative”, Florence is invested towards monetising the nonprofit tools, skills, environs, and resources honed by Femme in the last decade; creating reliable, lasting income generating sources that will maximise Femme’s impact in delivering MSRH solutions, and achieve menstrual equity by 2030.

Femme International

Femme International is committed to teaching females in developing countries about menstrual health, and providing healthy and sustainable alternatives to traditional menstrual management.
