THE STORY:

The #Let’sFaceItPeriod social media campaign aims to start an open and global dialogue on menstruation to break taboos and stigmas that exist worldwide, and to raise funds to support menstrual health programs in Tanzania, Kenya, and South Sudan. This December, we are aiming to raise $10,000 to go towards supporting the campaign!

$70 - is the equivalent of 2 reusable pad kits for 2 girls that can last up to 2 years, including underwear and training

$35 - is the equivalent of 1 kit with reuable pads that can last up to 2 years, underwear, and training

$10 - is the equivalent of one reusable pad kit that can last up to 2 years

Menstrual hygiene is key to women’s health, education, dignity and is a basic human right. However, In many cultures it remains a taboo, and something impure and shameful leading to restrictions and isolation on women’s participation in daily activities. Limited access to information and lack of knowledge further can lead to women not having proper access to sanitary products and facilities including clean water, soap and disposals. Girls often miss out on school due to lack of toilets, soap water and proper sanitary products which eventually may lead to dropouts.

In addition, women and girls suffer from serious psychological side-effects: embarrassment, shame, and loss of dignity leading to undeniable consequences of stigmatizations surrounding menstruation. Therefore, considering menstrual hygiene management as an urgent issue is not only a matter of gender equality but also of human rights, education, health and other impacted fields. The #LetsFaceItPeriod campaign will be supporting four organizations that work in the Kenya, Tanzania, and South Sudan, ( Huru International, Girls Health Ed, Femme International and Stand4Education). In total, the projects will help over 20,000 girls across Africa. All the projects will provide access to sustainable and reusable Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) products and trainings on Sexual Reproductive Health, MHM and women’s rights.
