Yes, believe it or not, there is such a thing as Menstrual Hygiene Day! Why? Because menstrual hygiene is a global human rights issue!
Menstruation carries significant stigma and brings challenges that affect the lives of women and girls around the world in terms of education, employment, health, and emotional wellbeing. Girls in Uganda face particular challenges related to menstruation.
Over the Moon is proud to be an official partner of Mentrual Hygiene Day 2015, and we are grateful to WASH United for welcoming us to the network. We’re working to improve menstrual hygiene for girls in Lira district and you can help!
