East African E-commerce platform for women’s health, personal care and beauty products, Kasha, is taking great steps to combat the spread of Coronavirus in Kenya and Rwanda where it operates.
The platform is available online and offline to ensure the company serves women of all socio-economic backgrounds.
For Kasha, as a social enterprise, Purpose driven collaboration is key in this period to ensure we get essential products and information to the most at risk communities in the safest way possible.
Jade Oyateru, Senior Marketing Manager, says, “We are taking this pause as an opportunity to support families who may not have the financial ability to get the essential products that they need to keep safe and healthy. Together with our community of customers, we will provide basic hygiene kits that families need at this time. Our customers can choose to donate an essential kit to a family they know is in need and Kasha will make the delivery on their behalf or customers can choose to donate to a low income family that Kasha has identified through our Kasha Agent network.”
The essential kits include soaps, hand sanitizers, sanitary pads, face masks and other essential items. Kasha will also extend this distribution outside Nairobi to Siaya County (Bondo) where it currently has a network of 98 agents that deliver Kasha orders to the last mile.
