It is well known that cultural stigmas and lack of menstrual education can cause fear and shame globally for girls beginning their menstrual journey at menarche-occurrence of the first period. FlowTech4Girls participants will destigmatize menstrual health by designing a youth focused technology platform to educate, inform, support, and empower Black and Brown girls throughout their youth menstrual journey. In turn, the participants will be mentored and educated by Black and Brown women in technology, engineering, medicine, public health and community advocacy.

Please support us as we continue to reimagine a world where youth are the visionaries and creators. Every dollar will be invested in providing girls with the necessary skills and resources to be agents of change in their communities. All donations are tax-deductible.
