The Harsh Facts

(From TheCup.Org)

  • Studies show that girls miss up to 20 % of their school time each year because they are afraid of staining their clothes or are lacking a solution for handling their bleeding.
  • In some cases girls have no options available and are forced to sell themselves to be able to buy pads, which puts them at risk of HIV and aids and other sexual diseases, teenage pregnancy, illegal abortions and the risk of falling into prostitution.
  • One school study in Ethiopia reported over 50% of girls missing between one and four days of school per month due to menstruation.
  • 48% of girls in Iran believe that menstruation is a disease. (WSSCC, A change of tide, India, 2012)

My only concern is the lack of clean running water to prevent urinary track infections. I am new this lunette but am excited about its success and potential. It would be a great day when pads and tampons are something of the past. :)

Hi Sarah!

You are right - the lack of clean water is a big problem. Luckily the cup itself prevents urinary- and other infections. The girls have access to boil the cup and that is super important.
