BETTER HEALTH EDUCATION IS NEEDED
Menstrual hygiene management (MHM) remains an issue for menstruators around the world as they continue to have limited access to resources. Through our Healthy GLOW program, we are working alongside girls to ensure they have the information they need to stay healthy and in school. The ultimate goal of Healthy GLOW is to give girls what they need to have the confidence to advocate for their health and wellness and make positive choices for their futures. Proper education ensures all menstruators have greater access to period products, education about their bodies, and a caring and safe adult to ask questions of and confide in.
To commemorate Menstrual Hygiene Day 2021 (May 28), the Global G.L.O.W. team developed a special curriculum that allows club members to learn about commonly held myths and taboos about menstrual cycles as well as artistically express the power and strength that comes with having a period.
