Global & Local Impact

The vast majority of girls in rural Ethiopia do not have access to adequate menstrual hygiene products.

Clashes between federal and regional troops in the northern Ethiopia have forced us to pause our work in Tigray. Read a statement about the conflict in the latest edition of our e-newsletter.

Dignity Period's outreach extends to the Tigray and Afar regions of northern Ethiopia.

In 2019, Dignity Period

  • Reached 175 schools

  • Educated 135,000 students

  • Delivered 66,000 pad kits

  • Saw a 24% drop in school absences among girls, compared to boys


Dignity Period has reached more than

students so far.

Period poverty also exists in the U.S. 

Dignity Period has extended outreach to meet the hygiene needs of low-income women in our hometown of St. Louis.
