We are in the process of communicating with Epworth High School in order to find an efficient system that allows us to
distribute sanitary pads 3 times a year to the young women at the school in Harare, Zimbabwe.
Sanitary wear is unaffordable for many women in Zimbabwe. Some end up using rugs, leaves and in worst case scenarios, some even turn to sex work just to be able to buy this basic necessity.
This is no way for a woman to live which is why our charity distributes pads for FREE! We want to see every girl and woman not only survive life, but thrive and conquer it.
Every term, we pay school fees for 6 children at Tsungai Primary School, Harare, Zimbabwe.
About 49% of children across the country get turned away from school due to parents failing to pay school fees.
Though we are a woman-centred business and charity, we just could not live boys out when it comes to education.
We all know education is key and every child has the right to education. We, as Refined Eight just want to do our part in making sure each child has access to education.
We will always update the website with pictures and videos of pad distributions and fees payed.

When you donate money to our charity, we will inform you via email, how your money has been used and we'll send you pictures, videos and messages from the girls and boys in Zimbabwe. That way you can really see for yourself, the difference and the impact you're making in their lives.
We paid for 10 children photographed here next to our trustee. (9 children in the picture because 1 was absent on the day) Thank you to everyone who donated and played a part in blessing these children.
Your support will enable us to continue showing the children in Zimbabwe that they matter, they are not forgotten.
I'm a 2nd year medical student at The University of Zimbabwe. I believe I was called to serve. For me, Refined Eight is key to the success of my dream of raising a generation of highly empowered and healthy young ladies and the community at large.
I'm a feminist at heart. I'm really passionate about helping girls because I can resonate with them. I know their struggles, so I want to help girls fight them.
I'm a teacher at Tsungai Primary School. I have a BSc in Sociology and I would like to work together to help those in need, especially children who can't afford school fees; so they can proceed and succeed in their education.
