The pandemic disproportionately impacts women and girls, in profound and challenging ways. With upticks in gender-based violence, teen pregnancy, increases in poverty, and food scarcity, we redoubled its effort to continue addressing period poverty and menstrual health education.

We created a delivery schedule to cover as many villages as possible, ensuring women and girls continue to manage their menstrual health with dignity.
