We believe in a world where every girl has access to good menstrual hygiene.

Girls deserve to be in school…during their periods.

Menstruation matters because ½ of the world goes through it.

Menstruation is a human rights issue. All human rights stem from the right to human dignity.

Menstruation matters so that all women can live their cycles free from taboos, myths and shame.

Menstruation is natural.

The crisis is massive. But together, we can solve it. Join us.
