Generation. Education. Period.
Globally, 1 in 10 girls can't afford to buy menstrual products
In India alone, only 12% of women have access to sanitary products, leaving the rest using unhygienic materials like rags and sawdust
Who we are
Generation Education Period is a service activity at UWCSEA East Campus. We are a team of students committed to raising awareness about period poverty, working towards ending menstrual shaming, and promoting the use of environmentally sustainable sanitary products
Period poverty refers to a lack of access to sanitary products due to financial constraints. We know that Period Poverty is prevalent in Singapore and around the world, and want to raise awareness about this.
Menstrual shaming is nothing new to some of us. We see it in varying degrees, but women around the world face immense danger to their health and safety due to the taboo and stigma around menstruation.
Sustainability remains one of the driving forces of our message, which is why we have chosen to partner with Freedom Cups, a Singapore-based company that sell sustainable menstrual cups.
