End Period Poverty and Give Girls, Women Hope

Summary

Girls and women living in poverty struggle to afford essential period products to manage their menstrual hygiene. As a result, many low-income girls miss valuable days of school or work every month. Education rises out of poverty, and when girls are unable to fully participate in educational opportunities, their potential of breaking the cycle of poverty is diminished. Mothers struggling to work will struggle to care for their families.

Challenge

Women and girls living in poverty struggle to afford essential period products to manage their menstrual hygiene. As a result, many low-income girls and women miss valuable days of school and work every month. Education rises out of poverty, and when girls are unable to fully participate in educational opportunities, their potential of breaking the cycle of poverty is diminished.

Solution

Access to essential period products will enable girls to participate fully in daily life, including school. Our On the Dot program provides essential menstrual hygiene products at no cost to our partners - schools, faith-based organizations or nonprofits. This gift empowers vulnerable women and girls to rise out of poverty.

Long-Term Impact

Education rises out of poverty, and when barriers to learning are removed girls can stay in school. Increased attendance is possible through your generous support. Women who can continue earning a needed income will be better off when they no longer miss work simply because of their period. This enables them to have more long-term cash available. Thanks for helping women and girls break the cycle of poverty and live to their fullest potential.
