Knowledge, products, and supportive environments for all menstruators.
Days for Girls Canada Society is a registered Canadian not-for-profit and is a Country Affiliate with Days for Girls International. Volunteers across Canada mobilize to increase access to menstrual products and vital health information for menstruators around the world.
Last year, Days for Girls Canada delivered over 20,000 Kits to menstruators in 48 countries.
Every Days for Girls member is an Advocate for Menstrual Equity. In Canada that means we have hundreds of advocates. Every time we participate in the making of a DfG Kit, every time we tell someone about what we do, every time we encourage others to support our work, we are advocating for menstrual equity everywhere. Period. We are doing our part to end period poverty!
But there is more to be done. Addressing the challenges faced by people with periods also means tackling the stigma attached to menstruation. We know that even in Canada menstrual inequity is an undeniable driver of school absenteeism, classroom and public shaming, missed opportunities, and more, all of which lead to more inequities.
We are building momentum. With our Teams of advocates across the country to help us coordinate our efforts, we will add our DfGCS voices to the global menstrual equity movement that is underway. We will change the world for everyone who menstruates.
