Millions of Girls are being held back by their periods

“There is a monthly prison…a web of myths and lies.”

74% of the girls we work with believe that period pain is a sign of illness

43% believe it is harmful to run or dance

and 50% report missing school during their period


Irise International works to…

.empower girls with knowledge about their own bodies…

….develop local social enterprises producing reusable sanitary pads…

1 social enterprise provides employment for 15 women and produces pads for 9000 girls a year.

1 Menstrual Health Trainer trains 10 educators who teach 6000 girls a year

Together we can create a world where no girl is held back by her period.
