We focus on creating local access to a choice of affordable menstrual products through; supporting local manufacturers, training entrepreneurs, establishing local markets through social marketing to increase demand and tackling last mile distribution challenges for the most marginalised communities.
We work with national and local government to develop curriculum and resources and train schools and teachers to deliver education year after year. We focus on integrating education about periods into existing work so that it becomes part of normal practice.
We partner with local champions to tackle myths and taboos surrounding periods. Through empowering local people to lead social change we create long lasting impact for young people and their communities.
We learn what works and share it with others, working closely with policymakers and local leaders. Through fine tuning and working with others to scale our intervention we’ll empower every school and community in East Africa to become period friendly.
