    Weʼve raised £2,225 to Improve menstrual hygiene and provide MOON-CUPS for Rwandan school girls

    Funded on Friday, 7th September 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Hi everyone,

    As most of you know I will be spending 3 months in East Africa later this year and want to raise funds for MOON-CUPS!

    Mooncups are a good solution to improve period poverty and menstrual hygiene for young women in Rwanda. Not all women/ young girls have access to sanitary products and because of this girls often miss out on education as they are unable to attend school.

    or those of you that have not heard of a moon cup please check it out -

    1 moon cup costs approx. £15 and I hope to take as many as possible with me to distribute in local village schools.

    £150 of the money will also be spent on cycle beads for Uganda which are a ring of beads for women to track their menstrual cycle and track their most fertile days. This is to support family planning and act as a form of contraception. I will provide the maternity unit with 10 example so they can show the women how to make their own.


    Much Love - Lauren x

      Thank you everyone who has donated so far, I’ve raised 1/2 my target... if anyone else is able to donate to provide moon cups for girls in Rwanda there is still time!! Period poverty is happening all over the world and affects the life and education of many girls/women. I will Be spending a month in Rwanda working with a local school to distribute the moon-cups. X
