Kenshi Candles is all about raising money for charities so they can focus more on helping people in need and less on their finances.
Days For Girls is an international organisation committed to providing solutions to period poverty around the world. In Uganda, many people are simply too poor to buy pads and as a result when they get their period they miss days of school, and are forced to hide in shame. They are often shunned during this time, and have to resort to leaves, rags and other items in place of pads. This is also the beginning of a dangerous cycle that sees them swapping sex for pads – leading to teen pregnancy, STI’s and the spread of AIDS.
As a social enterprise Kenshi exists to help people in need and make a real difference in the world, our candles are hand poured in Melbourne and made from natural soy wax. Learn more about Kenshi and what goes into our candles under ‘Kenshi Story’.
