We invite you to join us, follow the SDG ball when it travels from country to country. Dig into the local menstrual-related challenges and solutions presented by our local partners and menstrual warriors within the countries. They present real stories and they do come up with solutions to how we together can eliminate period poverty.
See some examples of amazing pictures we have shared throughout the campaign.
To mark the International Menstrual Hygiene day on the 28th of May, Real Relief is partnering with Global Goals World Cup (GGWC) and partners in 26 countries, in kicking off a transnational dialogue on Menstrual health throughout the month of May. Each day from the 1st to the 28th of May, the campaign is going to zoom in on the biggest challenges related to menstrual health and hygiene in each partnering country. It is done through a virtual campaign starting in Denmark, and by symbolically kicking a football with the SDG’s printed on it from country to country.
The difficulties facing girls and women across the world in relation to MHM are numerous and unacceptable. The topic of MHM continues to be a taboo subjected to shame and stigma. The lack of access to information, education, and products to manage one’s period with dignity and pride are essential. More than 500 million girls and women worldwide are not able to manage their period hygienically and with dignity. Ultimately, this puts girls and women at risk of infection and disease, of early pregnancy, and of missing out on an education.
With this campaign, we share a common goal of putting menstrual hygiene on the agenda. We will do so with reference to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (SDGs). As we kick off the dialogue, we aim to improve girls and women’s health, rights and opportunities for quality education, gender equality, and safe sanitation and hygiene (SDG 3, 4, 5 and 6).
