Faculty Research Mentors:
1. Pads + Education = Impact. The combination of the availability of pads and the education efforts enables Bana to realize its mission.
2. Change Agents. Bana relies on word-of-mouth communication and taps into existing communal networks in order to spread awareness of the mission. Those spreading knowledge and awareness about Bana’s mission become change agents in their community.
3. Demand. Bana’s educational and outreach efforts have created greater demand for their products and services than they can currently provide given their limited resources. Mechanizing the manufacturing process of pads is one of the key steps needed to take in order for Bana to satisfy demand.
1. Monitoring & Evaluation Plan: In order to track the various health impacts that Bana has on the community, we created a monitoring and evaluation guide, consisting of two tools: a health data reporting system and an interview guide. The health data reporting system will help Bana understand the relationship between regional sales data and incidents of acute infections and conditions related to menstruation. The interview guide will provide further detail to the health report data and also collect feedback on their products and services so that they can improve their impact.
