ZanaAfrica Jobs in Kenya

ZanaAfrica Field Officer - The Nia Project Jobs in Kilifi, Kenya


About ZanaAfrica


ZanaAfrica is a social enterprise headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya that provides dignity and inspiration for women and girls to live their purpose through sanitary pads and related products.

We envision a future where girls in East Africa live healthy, safe, informed lives while defining their own purpose—a world in which menstrual health management is recognized as a human right, and the onset of puberty as the most effective time to engage girls in a range of personal health decisions.

Our business arm maintains a portfolio of high quality sanitary pad products and brands designed for and by East Africa women. Our non-profit arm innovates scalable, engaging health education solutions that, together with our pads, deliver comprehensive menstrual and reproductive health support. Together, we leverage the best of the private and non-profit sectors to equip women and girls with the support they need to define their purpose and live the life they choose.
