Company’s history

Kosmotive was founded in 2014 to improve Maternal and Child Health in Rwanda and throughout Africa.

We save lives by increasing access to menstrual, maternal, and child health information and products, and access to healthcare services to people who currently don’t have access to it, using the publication of Kosmos Magazine, KosmoHealth App and Helpline, Storytelling, and Socio-economic empowerment for marginalized women in Rwanda_ through our Fashion Incubator making Kadablah collection of maternity and nursing wear for empowering parents and enabling breastfeeding, and KosmoPads reusable sanitary pads for investing in girl’s education, women’s health and the planet, one pad at a time.

Kosmos Magazine

Is a print and online periodical that offers interesting child and maternal health and lifestyle information to young women and mothers in Rwanda. Launched in June 2014, it provides parenting advice for a wide net of readership, including fathers, young people, and anyone interested in the wellbeing of families.

KosmoHealth App

Is a mobile resource for pregnant women and individuals seeking urgent care and home-based healthcare services. Key features include geolocation to help users search for nearby doctors and specialists, a Helpline for first aid support (urgent intervention) and access to home-based antenatal care. The app allows users to register at any point in their pregnancy and receive advice and alert messages related to their pregnancy term.

Kadablah Collection

is a Maternity and Nursing Wear Brand that uses different eco-friendly textiles to make clothing, shoes, and accessories for pregnant women and breastfeeding moms; made in Rwanda. We train women to work with us in producing Kadablah products and share with them important information about safe pregnancy, safe birth, child development and all about parenting.

KosmoPads

Is our latest initiative to produce eco-friendly, cost-effective, reusable sanitary pads for young women and girls to not only discuss their challenges about menstruation, but also learn how to make pads for themselves and other school girls. As girls break the silence about menstruation and benefit financially from making and selling pads, they will come to see their periods as a source of pride and power.
