Days for Girls Honored In Groundbreaking Period Poverty Report

Exciting news! In a groundbreaking new report on Menstrual Health & Hygiene, Days for Girls was named as one of the world’s eight most effective and sustainable organizations fighting to end period poverty.

Kulczyk Foundation and Founders Pledge launched A bloody problem: period poverty, why we need to end it and how to do it to shine a light on the state of Menstrual Health & Hygiene (MHH) -- including current interventions, funding gaps and opportunities for investment.

It’s part of a new commitment by philanthropist Dominika Kulczyk to tackle the burden of period poverty by uncovering the most cost-effective solutions available.

Period poverty is an urgent yet grossly-underfunded and under-researched human rights issue. Millions of women worldwide do not have what they need to manage menstruation with dignity, yet total global spending on MHH equates to less than $.20 per woman.

This report is the first of its kind to survey the global menstrual health funding landscape and make evidence-based recommendations for closing this gap (through strategic philanthropic investment in organizations like Days for Girls).

We were named as a top contender out of 80 total organizations thanks to our extensive global reach; our direct, tangible impact for women and girls; our commitment to sustainability and locally-led solutions; and our involvement of boys and men in anti-stigma efforts.

Read the full report for an in-depth exploration of MHH challenges, solutions and why Days for Girls was honored as a standout leader in the field!
