What’s Menstrual Hygiene Day?
Menstrual Hygiene Day (MH Day) is a global advocacy platform that brings together the voices and actions of non-profits, government agencies, individuals, the private sector and the media to promote good menstrual hygiene management (MHM) for all women and girls. More specifically, MH Day:
breaks the silence, raises awareness and changes negative social norms around MHM, and
engages decision-makers to increase the political priority and catalyse action for MHM, at global, national and local levels.

What is The Cova Project?
Let’s not treat this like a bad first date, we want you to get to know the real us. The Cova Project was founded by sisters, Geena and Caillie Dunne. In 2015, Geena worked in Namibia, on the West coast of Africa where she saw the problem of Period Poverty first hand. Due to Geena suffering from a chronic illness for over ten years, she cleverly recruited her sister’s sharp brain and together they decided to combat the issue. Using a network of women across Africa, the two have distributed over 3,000 menstrual cups and are changing the lives of girls who miss out on school and work when menstruating.
It’s reported that girls in sub-Saharan Africa can miss up to 50 days of school a year because of a lack of sanitary products. Why should that be the case when there’s such a simple and affordable solution.
