Diva Cups for Women and school girls
Organized by: christine Mentz
I learnt about a terrible problem happening in my country where girls who have their periods do not have access to sanitary products miss school because they are too embarrassed and have no way to collect the blood from their periods. I am so passionate about women empowerment and to find out that girls were missing up to 7 days a month meant that they were not being afforded the same opportunities. Enter the Diva Cup, I use one myself and they cost about R600, about $40 which is a reusable device which is not only environmentally friendly but also collects the blood and removes the problem of having to miss school. I am on a mission to raise money to buy these for school girls and women who need access to sanitary products. I want to empower women because they are the worlds greatest untapped resource.
