Who We Are
We are so excited you're here and we hope you will join us in our For Girls campaign — to ensure that every girl can hold their dignity, health, and continue their education. Period.
🙌 Mission 🙌
✨ Vision ✨
We believe that every girl deserves menstrual dignity. Our mission is to eradicate Period Poverty facing our world's most vulnerable communities. We want to support girls who are experiencing Period Poverty and not let their periods act as a barrier to achieving their full potential through fundraising in order to provide sanitary napkins, period educational booklets, and fund building a period friendly school latrine for girls in need.
Our vision is to work towards a world in which every girl does not have to end their education early because of their period. We understand that we can't change the whole world in one night, but we believe that every action has a ripple effect and the potential to give rise to change as changing the life of one girl can go on to change the lives of many. Together, we can work towards menstrual equity.
