Why are current solutions out of reach?

COSTLY

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

INACCESSIBLE

Current products are not available.
46% of the global population is rural, where access to sanitary products is limited or nonexistent

FORBIDDEN

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

 
 

WE WORK TO REMOVE THE MENSTRUATION AS A BARRIER TO OPPORTUNITY.
