Can you imagine being discriminated against, even experiencing violence, simply because you're on your period? Sadly, this is still happening in many different parts of the world: women and girls faced with adversity related to their menstrual hygiene. Picture yourself having to deal with this: - Missing school or work each month because you're on your period. Even being forced to sit still at home and bleed! - Stressing out about over-using pads or not having enough underwear. - Having to use unsanitary materials like cloth, tissue, OR pieces of mattresses because you have zero access to personal care products. - Engaging in transactional sex (i.e. sex for pads) to be able to go to school. The above is the reality many girls face, especially in developing countries. Despite progress made in recent years, girls continue to suffer immense disadvantage/exclusion in the education system for the majority of their lives because they bleed! Team Lunette sees this as an increase in untapped potential and a decline in future girl bosses across the globe. The solution seems obvious: these young girls need access to education. By providing more girls with schooling, it's possible to help not only the girl being educated but the community as a whole. Educated women are: - Less likely to marry early and against their will. - Less likely to die in childbirth. - More likely to have healthy babies. - More likely to send their children to school. This positive step towards change will affect entire communities and ensure that future generations have the chance to make a difference for the better. Our goal is to be a part of this positive change by making sure that girls and women EVERYWHERE have a healthy, sustainable and affordable option for period products. We work with locals, and our aim is to achieve positive, long-term impacts. Are you as determined as we are to change attitudes and prejudices and be a part of the positive change that is happening in the world right now? Give us a shout out below if you're onboard with that!Read The Story
It feels great to give back, right? As a savvy woman, with the world at her fingertips, it’s important to stay up to speed on what’s happening to girls across the globe who may not have it so easy. We’ve got to ban together for change! Since the beginning of Lunette, our founder Heli has made charity work a big focus of our mission. Some of our first projects were with World Vision (2010) and Kate Brooks (2012), where we donated Lunette cups to local women in Kenya and educated them on health issues. Why is this important? The most common problem for school girls in Kenya is a lack of sanitary protection. Most girls miss a whole week of school each month because of their periods, and they eventually drop out earlier than boys do. Can you imagine having to deal with this yourself? That idea led us to link up with The Cup. The Cup is an awesome non-profit whose mission is to educate and empower girls living in challenging environments. They do this by giving girls life skill training and access to menstrual cups. For these girls, a menstrual cup means they can stay in school, i.e. no longer have to miss school because of her period! What does Lunette and The Cup do exactly? - The project began in 2015 in Kibera, one of the biggest slums in Nairobi, Kenya. - We provide four one-hour sessions where girls get sexual/health education. They can ask whatever questions they have. - During the session a girl gets a cup, so she no longer has to miss school because of her period. - Since the project started, the lives of thousands of girls have changed for the better. Post session, these girls have stopped missing school because of their periods, and are armed with reliable information about issues concerning sexual health and menstruation. Winning! The Skinny on the Menstrual Hygiene Management Package We also give back via Menstrual Hygiene Management packages. The MHM package increases awareness of health issues and human rights and provides cups to girls in need. The package includes a Lunette cup and hands-on training for girls. The training focuses on the girl’s needs and covers reproductive health, hygiene, HIV, and human rights. Why the MHM package rocks: - Increases gender equality - Improves attendance in school or work - Gives a better understanding of reproductive health and rights - Improves sanitation - Provides savings for women and girls - Reduces waste We find it super important to be a part of the change and create lasting solutions in the world.
