We Care Because...

Menstrual Health is a critical component of promoting gender equity and ensuring people who menstruate reach their full potential.




 

Supporting the Millions

Worldwide, an estimated 500 million lack adequate menstrual health resources to manage their periods.

Without products, infrastructure such as toilets, and accurate health education, menstruators face significant restrictions in their daily life, including restrictions on their ability to attend school and go to work.

 

We realize that Menstrual Health (MH) is vital in promoting gender equity effectively across the globe.

At Days for Girls, we are turning periods into pathways. We increase access to menstrual care and education by developing global partnerships, cultivating social enterprises, mobilizing volunteers, and innovating sustainable solutions that shatter the stigma and remove the barriers and limitations of menstruation. 

Our vision is to create a world with dignity, health, and opportunity for all.

Menstrual health education, while taboo in many cultures, remains an effective gateway to conversations on sexual and reproductive health (SRH).

 

An effective MH Education program examines complex topics including puberty, reproduction, contraception, STDs, sexual abuse and even self-defence.

 

Menstruators worldwide, including in Canada, need our help. Insufficient accurate menstrual health education and lack of regular access to menstrual products too often result in missed days of school, decreased engagement in school activities, and even school dropout.

With our Teams of advocates across the country to help us coordinate our efforts, we will add our DfGCS voices to the global movement that is underway. We will change the world for everyone who menstruates.
