The Team

The MELA Advisory Board is composed of a multidisciplinary and multicultural team of very committed and experienced women and men who leads and contributes to the company from different backgrounds and working experiences.

We are driven by a common mission and values where gender equality, environment and social innovation and transformation take a prevalent place.

We believe that the only way to produce great menstrual products every day is with great people who truly enjoy their job.

The hands behind MELA FOR HER products are those of experienced seamstress and cutters who work at our workshop in Addis Ababa. We also provide opportunities for young vulnerable women and men so they can have a first job experience and later on professionally grow with us.

Together with them, our administrative, finance, marketing and education specialists work hard to ensure that our product and services reach all women and girls across the country.

We are proud to say that MELA FOR HER is a women’s social enterprise since more than 85% of our team is composed of young women.

The unique and committed human force behind MELA makes our company highly competitive and ready to take on existing and future challenges.
