Girls in Africa Desperately Need Menstrual Cups and Pads. Those of us living in developed countries often take our access to feminine hygiene products for granted. But instead of reaching for your product of choice when you get your period, what if you didn’t have any reliable way to stop your flow? No pads, no tampons, no menstrual cup. Nothing.

Sadly, adolescent schoolgirls around the world face that reality every month. Indeed, a lack of proper feminine hygiene products is one of the biggest challenges to gender equality in impoverished countries. In places like South Africa, girls have to make do with rags, bits of paper and sometimes even grass. These aren’t exactly leak proof methods. Worrying about embarrassing leaks at school is something that keeps girls from attending during their period.

7 Million girls in SA miss school every month due to lack of access to sanitary pads.

It might come as a surprise that an item as simple as a menstrual cup  can make a real difference in helping these girls obtain a better life. 

Sending disposable pads and tampons isn’t a solution because many of these areas don’t have trash disposal facilities. Cloth pads and menstrual cups are the most logical choice.
