The combined impact of conflict, climate change, COVID-19, and the rising costs of food and fuel has left Millions of Nigerians struggling to afford the most basic of necessities. This challenge is greater for women and young girls as Period poverty adds an extra layer of disadvantage, creating unique barriers to opportunities. Period poverty is the lack of access to sanitary products, menstrual hygiene education, toilets, handwashing facilities, or waste management.
We support girls by challenging the stigmas, taboos and inequalities associated with menstruation through service, education and advocacy. In addition to providing girls with sustainable period products, we provide education on menstrual health and intend to be at the fore front of conversations against period poverty in Nigeria.
We dream of a world where no girl suffers from period poverty or the stigma associated with their periods. While we may not be able to change the world, we are determined to change the situation in Nigeria, one girl at a time.
