Be Girl technology was developed as a design solution to the negative outcomes that result from lack of affordable, effective and appropriate hygienic menstrual protection for women worldwide. We create sustainable, thoughtfully designed menstrual products that support both the physical and mental well-being of women so that biology and stigma are not barriers to opportunities.

Why are current solutions out of reach?
Current products cost too much. Almost half the world — over three billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day
Current products are not available.
46% of the global population is rural, where access to sanitary products is limited or nonexistent
Stigma makes menstruation a taboo topic. Across cultures, women are forced to face their periods in un-dignifying conditions and men to stay in complete ignorance
