Period poverty affects women and girls all over the world.
Access to sanitary products, safe, hygienic spaces in which to use them, and the right to manage menstruation without shame or stigma, is essential for anyone who menstruates.
But for many, this is not a reality. This is not just a potential health risk – it can also mean women and girls’ education, well-being, and sometimes entire lives are affected.
That’s why we work with women and girls, community leaders, men and boys, schools and governments to help end period poverty around the world — once and for all.
From supporting Girls’ Clubs that help girls learn about periods, to distributing sanitary kits in emergencies and training women to make cheap, reusable sanitary pads, we’re working to make sure every woman and girl can manage her period with dignity. And we’re making progress every day.
