Hygiene kits

Don’t let periods hold girls back

Without access to toilets or sanitary products at school, girls' lives are put on hold during their period, as they have little choice but to stay at home. And missing days at school can lead girls to drop out altogether, putting them at greater risk of child marriage, and getting pregnant at a younger age.

By buying these hygiene kits you could help ensure that girls no longer have to fear going to school during their period.

Each hygiene kit contains a sanitary pad pack, a tablet of soap, a roll of toilet paper and a pack of paracetamol.
