Explore where it all Started

We started as a passion project in rural Sierra Leone to tackle the taboos and misinformation about menstruation we faced growing up in the City of Freetown. Now, we’ve impacted over 500+ women and girls with better menstrual and reproductive health education beyond Sierra Leone, and as far as Rwanda.
