As a project we want to raise awareness about period poverty within England. 1 in 10 girls cannot afford period products, resulting in 49% of girls missing out on education when they are on their periods. There is still such a stigma around periods and so many girls are embarrassed to talk about it or to even by period products. We want to work towards changing this through the Lunar Project in two ways. The first is a social media awareness campaign. The second is a social enterprise that up-cycles donated clothing and fabric into scrunchies which will then be sold and the proceeds will provide use with capital to buy period products and distribute them to those in need such as residents of a local homeless shelter and a women’s health center.

What Global Goals are we working towards?

3 – Good Health and Wellbeing

10 – Reduced Inequalities
