We are proud of our actions, and what we stand for.

30% of Fiji’s population lives in poverty. The Katalyst Foundation is dedicated to changing the narrative for these people by enhancing the advancement of Education, Health, Social Welfare, Infrastructure and Employment and Training.
Modibodi and Katalyst are providing women and young girls the opportunity to continue going to work and school during their menstrual cycle with reusable underwear.
Maasai Water Project
Most Maasai women have no menstrual products, so they ‘free bleed’ and wear black, handwashing the same outfit each day and staying away from school and social interactions.
Those who do have access to pads dispose of them in open pit toilets, while those in more primitive living conditions sit in a hole away from their village until their cycle is over.
The Maasai response to Modibodi has been overwhelming. The women ‘LOVE’ their reusable undies, enjoy feeling dry and dignified during their period – or to manage the bladder leaks many experience after giving birth to multiple children.
Plan International Australia, the charity for girls’ equality
In 2021 Modibodi proudly donated 22,250 pairs of underwear (our biggest donations yet) to improve the menstrual health outcomes for girls and women in Laos.

At the height of the pandemic in the UK, NHS staff were working around the clock fighting COVID-19…and finding time to take bathroom breaks was near impossible. With their capacity to absorb up to 10 tampons’ worth of fluid, Modibodi’s Maxi-24hrs underpants made it much easier for staff to manage leaks while working long shifts, so we donated close to 800 pairs to NHS staff in need.
We’re partnering with Good360 in Australia on a pilot program to provide reusable leak-proof underwear to victims of family violence, refugees and vulnerable youth.

Modibodi’s partnership with Thread Together began in support of the Australian flood victims in March 2022 providing underwear donations and financial aid to assist with the affected regions recovery.
