Speaking at the Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City in Accra, the CEO told the press that prisoners reforms will be at the heart of the new phase of her company with menstrual hygiene at its core.

“I will be starting with the Nsawam prisons and I will continue to other prisons across the globe. I will also be doing donations of beauty items to the ladies in some of these prisons,” Ms Adzogble explained June 26, 2020.
In addition to the commitment which will begin in July, the 28-year-old CEO revealed that she also intends to assist female inmates pay fines to grant them their freedom to return to their families.
