We are raising awareness and money for girls and women across the world who do not have access to safe sanitary protection.
Each month they have no dignity when menstruating.
We all have accidents imagine that happening to you every month.
The provision of affordable and quality sanitary products will have a positive impact on the physical, social and mental wellbeing of adolescent girls and women.
The money raised will go towards equal access to education for girls and young women who will not have to miss school due to menstruation. It will increase the educational attainment of adolescent girls living in such poverty that they do not have access to safe sanitary protection.
We are already working in Kenya and the UK to address this problem.
The funds you donate will go towards the making of washable and reusable sanitary packs for schools in Africa.
We are trying to tackle the problem here in the UK by raising awareness and campaigning for policy changes.
£6 will give a girl in Africa a sanitary pack that will last up to 3 years, this will stop her losing up to a week every month in education.
The freedom4girls project work in Kenya is run by UK based charity Maji Safi Projects (charity commission number 1106384)
Tina, what' s the most cost-effective regular way to help girls here in the UK? If I donate via a food bank I'm paying top dollar with no bulk saving, plus VAT. Is there any group around South Manchester that fund raises to buy in larger quantities? And is there any campaigning against tax on sanitary protection?
I will subscribe but would bevery interested to know more about help for girls in the UK??
I buy extra sanitary towels for young women at a local charity. I would happily buy more and donate locally, is there a way to do This? I was aware of the problem in Africa and am shocked by the same in the UK. I hope the problem products given are high quality as the most recent Always type brand, thick pads reminiscent of 1970s sanitary ware do not help with self esteem or comfort.
