In my focus group – Gender, Education, Period, we focus on number 1 and 5 SDGs meanly, which is no poverty and gender equality.  In the past few months, we contacted organizations that work in relatively poverty area where women there do not have abundant access to the period product. For instance, we connected to the women’s organization in Nepal and delivered some of the menstrual products to them. We gained positive feedbacks for this action as women there struggled with their menstruating health for a long time, our deliveries are now used by women there. We also made some educating slide shows for these people so they can better understand the concept and protect themselves. The aim of these actions is to raise awareness about women’s menstruating health due to poverty especially in developing areas, and also break stereotypes towards women’s menstruating life time.
