MSMEs in Papua New Guinea such as Meri Apo are driving social impact through their business to help mothers, daughters and even family improve their livelihood by providing them a market to sell their bilums, baskets and beautiful cane made home decors too. Recently this year, Meri Apo’s initiative #Bilums4Pads went viral! For every bilums sold, a PGK10 is put aside to purchase our product – Queenpads and to give back to these lovely Queen weavers, their daughters and those who need it to manage their special day’s needs. We are grateful that our product is impacting businesses and weavers this way.
Professionals working in corporate companies are also moved to give back to communities in Papua New Guinea like the Taganny sisters from Morobe Province. This year, they did couple of fundraisings to purchase products for hygiene kits which they made an effort to purchase a few Queenpads for a visit to an island called Nyapio in Manus Province. We supported the initiative through Sir Brian Bell Foundation’s with a donation of 100 Queenpads. Its heartwarming to see that our products is influencing for social impact this way.
Menstrual Conversations calls for inclusion of which male participations is encouraged. Knowing that Menstruation is a normal biological process, and understanding the challenges menstruating individuals experience every month is enough for men to respect and support the female loved ones in their lives. Brian Bell Group, being the first company in PNG had all its employees both male and female in 2021 attend Queenpads Menstrual Health sessions hosted at each outlet nationwide. We now seen organizations, schools and communities in the country involving men/boys in the conversation during our sessions. Happy to say some brave ones coordinate and participate actively in our sessions. The more informed they are, the better they understand. So far they really appreciate such informed sessions. No doubt many will become better dads, husband, partners and boyfriends too.
