Kampala, May 2015 – AFRIpads takes another major step in strengthening its social impact model. Effective May 2015, the Company is providing comprehensive health insurance coverage to all employees who have been with the company for minimum 12-months. By the end of 2015 this program is expected to cover 128 workers. In the words of the MDs: “As a social enterprise, providing a comfortable and empowering work environment for our employees, and supporting them through employee benefits are central to our mission”. The coverage is provided by UAP, one of Uganda’s leading comprehensive health care providers. Prior to roll-out, UAP conducted an orientation and Q&A session at all AFRIpads locations to ensure employees understand their benefits and coverage policy. This is a great achievement which we at Opes welcome very gladly - Keep rolling, AFRIpads!
