Your donation to the "pad a girl" project helped tackle period poverty but What is period poverty?
Period poverty is so many things. It is the inadequate accesss to mentrual health care. It is a lack of proper sanitation conditions and products to have safe hygienic periods. It is the heavy stigma and shame burdening so many young girls during their periods. It is the inability to continue on with education once menstruation begins. It is early marriage yes period poverty leads to child marriages. It is holding back girls back from realising their full potential. We need to break menstruation stigma.
