It's A Girl Thing

A UNESCO report estimates that one in ten girls in Sub-Saharan Africa misses school during their menstrual cycle. By some estimates, this equals as much as twenty percent of a given school year.
The majority of girls end up dropping out of school completely.


It's A Girl Thing donates menstrual cups to girls in East Africa to allow for a safe, healthy and dignified monthly cycle that will no longer deter them from attending school.

EVERY MONTH girls are dropping out of school or falling behind because they do not have access to proper sanitary items. For under $10 you can help a girl in East Africa stay in school and feel confident for the most important 10 years of her life.

Menstrual cups need only be boiled in water to be properly cleaned and do not leave behind the waste of sanitary pads and tampons.

Help make a better future for the world, one girl at a time!
