Organicup are involved in a number of different projects not only in developing countries, but also in developed countries such as the UK, Canada, and Denmark.
For the OrganiCup company, periods are taboo everywhere until periods are taboo nowhere.
The accessibility to period products in developing countries has long been known as an issue and girls have had to use make-shift solutions to manage their periods. What’s more, in recent years, it’s been brought to the world’s attention that period poverty is also very present in developed countries. No matter where, lack of access to period products limit girls and women from living their daily lives and exercising their basic rights – such as getting an education, going to work or even socialising.
That is why OrganiCup has made it their mission to provide a sustainable and scalable solution to end period poverty. Together with their partner NGOs, they aim to ensure those in need receive proper education about menstrual health and have access to period products.
So far, OrganiCup have donated more than 5000 cups to more than 20 partners in 15 different countries. They work with many different NGOs but here are a few links to some of them as well as how OrganiCup supports them:
