Story

Our branch of the Women's Institute (Burnt Cakes WI) has decided to tackle period poverty for school-age girls in our local community, which is Wantage and Grove in Oxfordshire.

In the UK 1 in 10 girls struggle to afford sanitary products, and we know that in 2017 137,700 girls missed school because they did not have appropriate sanitary wear to feel comfortable or confident in the classroom.

In September 2018 we will be placing boxes in two local secondary schools for girls to discreetly access sanitary wear and underwear without shame or embarrassment.

The Red Box will support disadvantaged young women throughout their entire period. So that they do not have to miss lessons, or miss their education.

This project is entirely funded by community kindness. Thank you.
