This is not acceptable !
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 and face stigma and discrimination.
We all have accidents, imagine that happening to you every month and every day of your period.
Girls and women are using rags, toilet roll, socks, ash, dung, leaves, corn husks, insoles of shoes anything to try and stem the flow which leads to leakage lots of infectionions and misery.
The provision of affordable and quality sanitary products will have a positive impact on the physical, social emotional and mental wellbeing of adolescent girls and women.
The money raised will go towards obtaining access to safe sanitary protection , delivering education to girls and women, who will then not have to miss up to 5 days of school or work due to menstruation each month.
Having access to protection will increase the educational attainment of adolescent girls living in poverty.
We are already working in Kenya, Uganda and the UK to address this problem.
The funds you donate will go towards the supply of disposable sanitary pads, mooncups as well as washable reusable sanitary packs for schools and women’s agencies in the U.K as well as worldwide.
We are already tackling the problem here in the UK by raising awareness, campaigning for policy changes in education, giving girls choice and creating positive change.
£7 will supply a girl in Africa with a washable reusable sanitary pack that will last up to 3 years. This will enable her to attend school without a break due to lack of protection.
Thankyou for your support ❤️

We will be distributing mooncups both here in the UK and Kenya thanks to our collaboration with Organi-cup Denmark.
Pleas keep donating so we can keep supplying
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.
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?
