Hi Ariel!

Yes, we would like to sell period-related products. We think that it would be an interesting opportunity and experience.

In Colombia, discussions about periods related topics can be considered a taboo challenge too. It's still a stigmatized topic. However, the context here is very different from East Africa. The problem turns around some vulnerable communities that can hardly access to SRH products and services. Then, it would be a good to study and to explore more period-related products.

Thank you so much for your feedback!

Dear Liz
Thanks a lot for your feedback. La Recyclerie provided great inspiration to continue in the development of our idea. In the strategic planning activities with Profamilia’s Young leaders we made some advances in figuring out how the C&S center experience would fit in SRH related activities into the café in the most natural and pleasurable way. We will upload a video of these activities as part of the refinement phase. Nevertheless we need to continue working on this, specially exploring different age-groups and sociocultural backgrounds to make our center the most inclusive and engaging we can.
If you have any experience on methodologies to use on designing our users’ experience; that would be very useful and will contribute to develop this project a bit more.

Again, thanks for your feedback! :)
