Period Matters Project: Empowerment Through Reusable Sanitary Pad Production

The Period Matters Project provides access to reproductive health information and sustainable, clean and safe options for menstrual hygiene management. The project aims to empower vulnerable groups – such as street girls, rural women and girls who have dropped out of school. Through teaching them how to sew reusable sanitary pads and providing opportunities with community health enterprises, we can alleviate poverty among women and girls and break this vicious cycle.
