END PERIOD POVERTY TODAY
Did You Know
800 million people around the world menstruate each day
As many as 500 million lack menstrual products and hygienic bathroom facilities
Women without access to menstrual products resort to unhygienic alternatives which can lead to serious health problems and increased risk of infection
Stigmatization and shame about menstruation can lead to social isolation as well as depression, abuse, neglect and sexual exploitation.
Lack of access to menstrual products causes women and girls to miss work and education, with 1 in 10 girls in Africa missing school because of their period
As part of our period poverty initiative, The Ida Lee Project is providing menstrual products and education to students in the DRC, helping girls stay in school and recoup 3 months of school every year.
Help us make a difference for women and girls in the Democratic Republic of the Congo
Your donation will provide essential menstrual products and support our medical teams and outreach educators fighting for menstrual equity.
