The Solution

Why menstrual cups?

  • last up to 10 years (through high school and university)
  • sanitary
  • eco-friendly
  • made of 100% medical grade silicone *

We’ve partnered with NGOs so that each girl and young woman will receive an individual menstrual cup, visual and written instructions, plus in-person education on reproductive health. We will partner with local educators, leveraging the knowledge already present in the community, to empower the next generation of students.

The Red Tent Project Reach:

  • 31 Schools 
  • 5 student houses
  • 5 NGOs
  • Refugee support group
  • HIV/AIDS outreach centre

The Global Impact:

According to the UN population fund’s state of the world population 2016 report, “each year of education delivers an additional 11.7% increase in wages in later life for girls. The study calculated that if all the 10-year-old girls in poorer countries completed secondary education, a $21bn annual dividend would be triggered. In some countries this could translate to individual earnings increasing by half by 2030.”
