Menstrual Hygiene Product Distribution & Education Outreach Project
The lack of sanitary pads for female school students is a major barrier to a girl’s education. Menstruation has been linked to an increase in school absentee rate during that time of the month.
To address this problem, Love your Menses and our sponsors have identified this problem, as such, we will support girls and women across Massachusetts and Monrovia, Liberia by ensuring they have access to safe, quality menstrual hygiene products. We will also be providing menstrual education led by medical and public health experts.
Since May 2020, Love your Menses has distributed over 450 period and postpartum care kits to girls and young women in Boston, MA and Monrovia, Liberia. In Fall 2020, we will be expanding our reach to Atlanta, Detroit, Houston, New Orleans, Nigeria, and The Gambia.
As we continue providing products for those in need, we are seeking donations. If you would like to support our initiative, we would appreciate monetary or product donations.
