Period Poverty is a harsh reality for many in Zimbabwe.
More than 800 million people menstruate daily. As Zimbabweans we must act to end period poverty and guarantee clean water and sanitation for all by 2030. Promoting menstrual equity is key to supporting women and young girls. You can join us in taking action on this issue here.
Women and young girls who menstruate are often ostracized from basic activities. The cultural shame attached to menstruation and a shortage of resources stop women from going to school and working every day. Period poverty is the lack of access to sanitary products, menstrual hygiene education, toilets, hand washing facilities, and, or, waste management.
