Menstrual solutions for schoolgirls in rural western Kenya
Nepal Earthquake Recovery Fund (NERF)
Nepal Earthquake Recovery Fund (NERF) aim to help the people of Nepal who have suffered personal and economic hardship following the earthquake of April 2015, paying particular attention to rural areas, women and children and marginalised ethnic groups. NERF aim to help facilitate recovery through the funding and implementation of efficient projects adhering to their values of transparency, accountability, kindness, collaboration, interaction, and grass roots engagement. Women and girls are struggling to afford basic products and it is hoped that the Mooncup will offer a solution to alleviate the financial burden of buying sanitary products as well as proving better for their health and the environment.
Mobilise a Midwife
Mobilise a Midwife is a Mother Health International project which raises funds to buy bicycles to help traditional Midwives in Uganda reach mothers. The project also provides local women with the Mooncup.
We support Rowley Projects in building latrines and supplying Mooncups to women in Rachuonyo Province, West Kenya.
