Why do we talk about periods?
Well, because they’re normal. And right now around 72 million people have to manage theirs without a decent toilet. No toilets that lock properly, no adequate period products or bins to put them in, no water to keep themselves clean. All of these things are not only humiliating, but can also be unsafe for women and girls on their period. Very often the embarrassment forces them to stay at home, instead of working or going to school. Ultimately, it means millions of girls and women have fewer opportunities and are disadvantaged at every stage of their lives. Open conversations mean young girls will grow up knowing how to manage their periods properly, as well as understanding they aren’t something to be ashamed of.
At the same time we’re working with local partners to build vital facilities, like female-friendly toilets, as well as infrastructure for clean water, so that everyone on their period can stay clean and healthy.
