Breaking Taboos: the Healthy Periods Initiative

​Just imagine attending school or work without toilets or drinking water. Imagine attending a school with a single latrine for all the students, or that the latrine is smelly, with no toilet paper and the door no longer closes. Just imagine attending work or school when you have your period. This is the reality for women and girls in low income countries.
​During the month of June, our goal is to raise $5000 for purchase, supplies, trainings and education!Support us in our mission that ALL women have the right to affordable and accessible feminine health practices. For questions to learn more, contact: Karen Sugar, microfund@gmail.comHelp us change this reality. It’s about equality and justice, period.
