For International Women’s Day, the Monsoon Accessorize Trust is donating to the Jeevika Trust

Period poverty is one of the #1 issues affecting women around the world today. ​

For women and girls in rural India, stigma and limited access to menstrual hygiene is one of the main reasons that girls drop out of school. 73% reported using a cloth during menstruation, while 66.7% developed reproductive tract infections as a result of using cloths. Today, the Monsoon Accessorize Trust has teamed up with Jeevika to help change this.

Working with its partner in India, Jeevika provides hygienic, eco-disposable menstrual products for women in the poorest communities.​

It also aims to create a solution going forward by providing reproductive-health education in local villages, and training in production of eco-disposable sanitary napkins. This will support future access to menstrual hygiene products, and a sustainable income for women in the community.
