A community for those working on grassroots period equality initiatives in East Africa and beyond. TPEN provides a space where grassroots organisations and those working with them can share resources & learning, access training, and be part of an active community to support their work and advocacy.
We provide the tools and resources to support grassroots menstrual health initiatives.
If you’re an East African led and registered group or organisation working to end period poverty, shame and inequality you can formally register with IIEA and receive tailored support, capacity building, small grant opportunities and avenues to engage in collective advocacy and leadership.
If you’re an individual or organisation who wishes to support the East African, grassroots movement or who are already partnering with East African organisations to improve menstrual health you can support the leadership and priorities of the grassroots movement. Register with Irise International and offer your technical expertise to the grassroots movement via training and capacity building. You will also gain access to conferences, workshops and other spaces where you can share learning and work with TPEN members to deliver effective menstrual health programmes and advocacy.
If you're working on menstrual health anywhere in the world become part of the online community to connect, share and learn from other grassroots initiatives.
