Celebrating Menstrual Health Teacher Training, Education and Products in Cambodia
The People’s Choice Award was chosen by the public as the program most deserving of recognition from the list of 50 Classy Award finalists. We are grateful to everyone who voted!
As a result of our partnership with the Cambodian Ministry of Youth, Education and Sport, we are excited for teachers to gain increased confidence, broader menstrual health knowledge and mastery of menstrual health teaching techniques. We anticipate positive changes in students’ knowledge, confidence, attitudes and beliefs surrounding puberty and menstruation as well as improved menstrual experience using DfG washable menstrual pad Kits. Finally, we anticipate the project will combat menstrual stigma in communities as menstrual health knowledge spreads. Read this article to learn more about our work in Cambodia.
Driving Our Cause Forward
“Thank you to Classy and everyone who voted for Days for Girls in the People's Choice Award category! You are bringing much needed attention to our work in menstrual health,” said Tiffany Larson, CEO of Days for Girls. “Together we can end period poverty and bring menstrual equity to women, girls and people with periods all over the world.”
