End Period Poverty
Period poverty is a pressing issue, especially affecting individuals in the BIPOC community. In Texas, 1 in 5 women and girls between the ages of 12 and 44 live below the Federal Poverty Line, with almost 60% of impoverished families having a female head of household. Studies reveal that 1 in 6 women and girls in Texas live below the poverty line, and a shocking 62% lack adequate resources for their menstruation needs.
This disparity disproportionately impacts single mothers and minorities. Period poverty is a neglected public health issue with far-reaching physical, mental, and emotional consequences. The stigma surrounding periods further complicates the problem. It's crucial that we address period poverty by destigmatizing menstruation and providing resources to understand and manage it.
Your support for our give-back initiative empowers us to make a real impact, educating girls about menstrual health and hygiene, and providing natural period products to inner city girls, especially those in the BIPOC community, through our collaborations with various non-profits, schools, such as Women Divine, NFP, For Oak Cliff, Friendship West, Girl Scouts of North Texas, Amandla!, just to list a few.
