Alison Wood: School girls were exchanging sex for sanitary products
Jun 10, 2021 Season 2
Dr Becky Sage and Amy Armstrong

Alison Wood is the founder of Lilypads, a social venture which aims to ensure menstruation is not a barrier to education through the sale of affordable reusable sanitary pads and provision of menstrual health education. 

She created Lilypads after learning that schoolgirls in Kenya were exchanging sex for sanitary pads, to remain in education. Through an innovative business model Lilypads subsidises their work internationally through the sale of a pad in the UK, this enables them to support girls most in need. 

We discussed:

  • Why investment isn’t always the best route
  • How to take advice mindfully
  • Taking risks in order to build a purpose led business
  • How to block out the noise
  • The value of having a vision you can believe in
