The family of Period Poverty initiatives: How to Donate and Get Involved
The issue of period poverty is super wicked – that is, it’s really complex, involves a lot of different parts of society and is home to deeply held and varied views.
To solve such a massive issue there are already a large amount of initiatives in this space all working together to increase access and affordability to sanitary items.
Where can I donate?
Here’s a non-exhaustive list of how you can donate and get involved.
Your purchase subsidises a Wā Cup for someone in need, preventing period poverty from affecting education in NZ - super cool and great for the planet.
Our initiative is a buy one, give one sanitary items in the workplace model. Organisations like ANZ and Cigna purchase a subscription from us, giving their female employees free access to sanitary items – we then match equivalent number of boxes to away to female students in high schools across New Zealand.
