The Challenge

Millions of girls miss up to 20% of the school year, or drop out completely because of social taboos and a lack of access to affordable menstrual hygiene management.

This increases their likelihood of early pregnancy and child marriage, has huge consequences on their education and the rest of their lives.

Plan trains school representatives and community health clubs to debunk myths and taboos around menstruation, engaging girls and boys in the process, and teaching the skills necessary to make their own reusable sanitary pads.
