Gilda’s hope to minimize the rate of teenage pregnancy in Tanzania inspired her business, LifePackage Solutions Company Ltd, which produces a product called MaishaPackage. This product is a package of sexual and reproductive health information including menstrual hygiene products such as sanitary pads, underpants, urine PH tests and condoms. This package provides a convenient, safe and affordable product to the youth in Tanzania, allowing young women to take control and responsibility of their sexual and reproductive health. Gilda has worked hard over her lifetime to rise above her circumstances and be a student of opportunity, continually finding new ways to improve her life and hopes this product will help other youth do the same.
