Menstrual cUP SUPPLIER
Flowcup is a manufacturer of menstrual cups, with a focus on sustainability and philanthropy. It was started by CEO Diana Lidforsen, who believes "access to comfortable and safe human rights should be every woman's right, no matter where in the world she lives". Flowcup's menstrual cups are made of FDA approved medical silicone.
What We Do
The Cova Project will provide menstrual cups to African women, to bridge the 50 day attendance gap between girls and boys due to menstruation. We will create educational materials, with accurate visual representation of the girls, to build confidence as they strengthen their knowledge around personal health and development. Our goal is to support African women with safe sanitary solutions

Why We Do It
"The short answer is, we do it because we can. We have the drive to make meaningful change and the commitment to make it happen. We don't have a choice. There is a problem and with some serious hard work and help, we can provide a solution."
Female sanitation is a global issue and Africa can lead the way on it. With Phase 1’s fundraising concluded, The Cova Project can confirm they will provide more than 3,000 menstrual cups to African women who need them!
