Through ADVOCACY, EDUCATION, ENTREPRENEURSHIP, GENDER EQUALITY
Through our educational program we believe that educating people about menstruation is a necessary part of the menstrual equity movement. We are raising awareness about period poverty, and we’ve included menstrual hygiene management education as a key component in all of our into all our school and community programs. We are also committed to using education to change the narratives about menstruation and combat menstrual stigma around the world.
Women and girls make up more than half the world’s population and yet in the majority of the world, their voices are not being heard. Influencing public policy and eliminating discrimination and biases through education and awareness is essential for women and girls to realize their full potential and contribute to their communities and countries in a meaningful way
Over 60 million girls around the world are denied the right to an education. Many are required to work, forced into an early marriage or face unimaginable violence. When girls receive a quality education, it not only changes their life, but also positively impacts their families, their communities and their country. Our world needs their gifts and talents.
In societies with rigid views of traditionally male and female roles, frequently reinforced by cultural and religious beliefs, women’s opportunities for engaging in paid work or starting up enterprises are often limited. Women need equal access to credit to invest and expand their business ventures, equal access to markets to sell and develop their products, and equal opportunities to acquire skills, knowledge and technology.
We imagine a world where women and girls are able to participate fully in economic, legal, political, and educational policy making. Where health care for women is a priority, girls and women are seen and treated as equals by everyone in the world and no girl ever feels at a disadvantage for being born female. It’s time to change that narrative and let women and girls shine.
