Periods for Hope

Our Mission:
Periods for Hope fights period poverty through the provision of reusable sanitary pads and breaks the stigma around menstruation and teenage pregnancy through knowledge dissemination because these challenges result in gender-based violence, and a disregard for the safety and dignity of South African women.
Our Vision:
A world where women are empowered, where period poverty does not exist, and where menstruation is not taboo.
Our Objectives:
1. Providing reusable sanitary pads to women and girls in impoverished communities.
2. Educating male and female scholars about reproductive and menstrual health with a primary focus on the link between these topics and gender-based violence.
3. Reducing the stigma around menstruation and empowering women and girls by promoting their sense of self-worth.
