Dignity Period's outreach extends to the Tigray and Afar regions of Ethiopia.
The vast majority of rural girls in Ethiopia do not have access to adequate menstrual hygiene products.
Last year, we:
Reached 175 schools
Educated 135,000 students
Delivered 66,000 pad kits
Saw a 24% decrease in school absences among girls, compared to boys
Every 4 minutes, Dignity Period helps one more girl stay in school by providing education and materials needed to manage menstruation
Dignity Period has reached more than
275,000 students so far.
Period poverty can also be found in the U.S. Dignity Period has extended outreach to meet the hygiene needs of low-income women in St. Louis MO.
