Knowledge sharing between organizations, within communities, should include menstruators in the conversation and provide education without shame or stigma.
We want to partner with you! Menstruators need the backing of their local governments to provide passable infrastructure as well as access to affordable menstrual products.
We are dedicated to educating menstruators, and providing necessary products, and support to people and their communities.
