50 Cents. Period.

The mission of 50 Cents. Period. is to empower women and girls to stay fully engaged in their lives and educations without the stigma and barriers surrounding their periods. They focus on programs and advocacy in underserved communities, providing sanitary products, reproductive health education workshops, clean water, and sanitation facilities.

50 Cents. Period currently has projects in Nepal, India, Uganda, and the USA. In the Masaka district of Uganda, they partnered with Engeye, (http://www.engeye.org/) to begin a curriculum of Mentrual Health and Hygiene Management (MHHM) and targeted reproductive health issues. As I will spend this summer in Uganda as a volunteer/intern with Engeye, I hope to build on the work already begun, and monitor the progress of the project.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Girls Transform the World Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring girls greater access to education which will transform their lives, their families, and communities. The Girls Transform Campaign elicits insightful content from young women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as women, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.
