    "Irise have always been as helpful as they are generous in sharing their substantial expertise to support the development of Dig Deep and our government partner's Menstrual Hygiene Management programme in Kenya."

    Ben Skelton - CEO of Dig Deep

    "From the start of my collaboration with Irise I have been impressed in that they do not just wish to help school girls but they wish to quantify the effect of what they do. This increases the impact of their work beyond the immediate girls who they assist and is a real strength of the charity."

    Steven Julious - Professor of Statistics

    "Irise are a world leader in menstrual health research and programming. Their integrity, evidence-based approach and genuine passion are the foundations of their work and I'm privileged to partner with them on a range of exciting projects."

    Dr Dani Barrington - Menstrual Health Researcher

    "Using Irise International’s menstrual education material, we were able to speak with the community about menstruation. I was so happy to share this with them and to empower them to escape the fear and worry that used to come with every period.”
