The Red Box Project Ripon, aim to quietly ensure that no girl misses school because of her period.
But we need your help to fund this project
What’s the issue?
It’s hard to believe that in this day and age people cannot afford period products. But this is true, and it is happening every day.
Research by Plan International UK found that:
- 137,700 girls in the UK have missed school because of period poverty
- 1 in 10 girls have been UNABLE TO AFFORD sanitary wear
- 1 in 7 girls have struggled to afford sanitary wear
If you had to choose between buying sanitary wear or eating which would you choose?
Whether it’s period poverty, not being able to ask at home, or just being caught short, we want to have their backs and let them keep their dignity.
The simple things like the red boxes and printing comes at a price and we need your help.
Thank you for your support.
