Menstrual Hygiene and Sanitary Materials
Ene will provide young women with sanitary materials to help remove the barriers they may face without access to these materials. A lack of access to menstrual products can lead to missed weeks of school and in some cases, forced sex in exchange for sanitary materials.
Our research found that disposable sanitary pads and tampons were a temporary fix to our problem of access, as the young women needed products that were reusable each month. To promote sustainable products, we have introduced washable pads and reusable menstrual cups.
