Story

Girls around the world experience shame and embarrassment when they start their period and struggle to access the support and information they need to be confident and comfortable during menstruation.

In Uganda over half of girls are using improvised materials ranging from rags to corn husks and banana leaves to manage menstruation and missing school during their periods.

In the UK 1 in 10 girls in the UK have been unable to afford pads and receive no preparation at all before their first period.

The shame of blood leaking through your skirt, boys calling you names, sores and infections makes you hate being a healthy young woman

Ugandan young woman to Irise

I went on the internet to learn more about my period when I was nine because I didnt know what it was. I used a help line to find out and they were rubbish!

British schoolgirl to Irise

This Menstrual Hygeine Day you can take action to end period poverty for good. Every £5 you raise will enable us to support another girl to stay happy and healthy during her period.
