A call for expressions of interest
CouldYou? seeks to build and sustain partnerships with local NGOs and communities to scale up the delivery of menstrual cups to vulnerable women and girls.
It is CouldYou?’s objective to sustainably deliver the menstrual cups to communities through partnerships with local NGOs, churches, community influencers, school districts, and government institutions
The ability to manage one’s menstrual health with adequate knowledge, safety, and dignity and without stigma is an essential human right.
However, in vulnerable communities, too many girls and women are not well prepared when menstruation begins. They lack access to information, products, and infrastructure needed to comfortably manage menstruation.
Girls’ and women’s health, well-being, and rights are compromised when they must isolate themselves from their families; avoid work, community activities, or school; and face risks to their physical safety because of their basic biology.
Adolescent girls are especially vulnerable to negative outcomes related to menstruation, including effects on their overall self-esteem and confidence.
The CouldYou? Cup project is sustainably addressing the menstrual health needs of marginalized women and girls through improved access to information and the menstrual cup.
