Cycle Health Zimbabwe (CHEZI), is a not for -profit organisation that is working to strengthen Menstrual Health & Hygiene programming in Zimbabwe.
Our efforts are aimed at creating a safe , supportive and enabling Menstrual Health and Hygiene Management environment for the vulnerable and marginalised Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW) aged 10-24years. This we do through targeted mobile outreach activities that are delivered in an integrated service approach through meaningful collaborations, that are aimed at promoting the delivery of a all in one comprehensive services basket that ensures zero missed opportunities for all other sexual reproductive Health Rights services while at the same time amplifying menstrual health service provision.
Our icon looks like a lotus flower and symbolises womanhood giving the impression of hands embracing our menstrual cycle.
The lotus has a life cycle unlike any other plant. It is an absolute beauty that should be experienced in pride and dignity.
What we do
MHHM Education & Awareness
Our efforts are targeted at creating a safe, supportive and enabling Menstrual Health and Hygiene Management (MHHM)environment for the Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW)and the communities that we serve. This we do through targeted mobile outreach activities that are delivered in an integrated services approach through meaningful collaborations, that are aimed at promoting the delivery of a all in one comprehensive services basket that ensures zero missed opportunities while amplifying Menstrual Health service provision. Our mobile outreach education, awareness and psycho-social support sessions and activities are concluded with re-usable Menstrual Pad (RUMP)Distribution.
Get in touch us to see how we can work together
Our pads are made from the baby soft flannel, fleece and a waterproof sheath /insert to avoid leaking and to keep you dry. The choice of fabrics are purposefully chosen for their good feel and texture plus a press stud that secures your pad by fastening it under the gusset (middle part) of your underwear, to form a secure seal, for your comfort and freedom.
Re-usable Menstrual Pad Production,
Distribution & Training
CHEZI produces and distributes Re-usable Menstrual pads (RUMPs). We also provide mobile RUMP making trainings as a lifeskill component for Adolescent girls and Women. Seeing that RUMPs can easily be produced locally, are cost effective as they are re-usable, more environmentally friendly, we realise that AGYW could use this skill as an income generating opportunity.
