"I have always used rags for my menses because my parents can't afford a sanitary pad"

It is a very cogent issue affecting women and girls who don't have access to safe, hygienic sanitary products, and/or who are unable to manage their periods with dignity, sometimes as a result of community stigma.

Period poverty is common among young girls and women in rural areas and unfortunately, the outbreak of Covid-19 has shifted the priorities of many household to how to feed.

These young girls most especially, who cannot afford sanitary pads end up being sad, frustrated, stigmatised and most times they don't go to school because they are unable to take proper care of themselves during their period.
