Advocacy & Service Project: Eliminate Period Poverty

What is Period Poverty?

Period poverty is a lack of access to menstrual products, education, hygiene facilities, waste management, or a combination thereof. It can also be defined as limited or inadequate access to menstrual products or menstrual health education as a result of financial constraints or negative socio-cultural stigmas associated with menstruation. The issue affects an estimated 500 million people worldwide, including in the US. Take Action- Educate, Raise Awareness, Create Service Projects.
