The combined impact of conflict, climate change, COVID-19, and the rising costs of food and fuel has left Millions of Nigerians struggling to afford the most basic of necessities. This challenge is greater for women and young girls as Period Poverty adds an extra layer of disadvantage, creating unique barriers to opportunities. Period Poverty is the lack of access to sanitary products, menstrual hygiene education, toilets, handwashing facilities, or waste management.


Our mission is to make a positive impact on the world.

We support girls by challenging the stigmas, taboos and inequalities associated with menstruation through service, education and advocacy. In addition to providing girls with sustainable period products, we provide education on menstrual health and intend to be at the forefront of conversations against period poverty in Nigeria.

We dream of a world where no girl suffers from period poverty or the stigma associated with their periods. We are committed to eradicating period poverty among young girls and women in Nigeria through the provision of access to menstrual health education, products and support. While we may not be able to change the world, we are determined to change the situation in Nigeria, one girl at a time.



“A world where period poverty is no longer a barrier to education, health, or gender equality.”
