End Period Poverty and Keep Girls in School

Summary

Girls 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 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.

Challenge

Girls 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 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. By providing essentials to menstrual hygiene management at no cost, we are empowering these vulnerable populations to higher education, 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. Thanks for helping girls break the cycle of poverty and live to their fullest potential.
