The MENstruation Foundation, is a nonprofit organisation that fights period poverty and gives women dignity. Girls in South Africa miss school and stay at home because of menstruation. The culture of silence around menstruation limits the ability of women and girls to equally participate in society. It undermines their social status and self-esteem. We give women the right to go to school, play sport, go to work and participate in life despite not being able to afford sanitary products.
