 How long will it take to close
the global gender gap?

Answer: 108 years according the World Economic Forum's latest Global Gender Gap report. For Rwanda, scores for national educational attainment for men versus women show a need for improvement. So what do we do about it?  

At SHE we're working to narrow the global gender gap one girl, one woman, at a time. So far, we've made and sold over 740,000 go! pads to 55,151 girls and women so they don't have to skip class and work. We're also closing the gender gap through launching women entrepreneurs. So far, 49 women refugee ambassadors have earned income from hosting menstrual hygiene education sessions in the Nyabiheke Refugee Camp. One of our refugee ambassadors used her earnings to start a small hair accessories business for women in the camp. Our movement is about more than pads, it's an opportunity for girls and women to create a future of hope and potential. Will you invest in a more equitable world for women and girls?

Teachers Get Schooled Too

Our menstrual hygiene curriculum is making waves in Rwanda. We have a new partnership with the government of Rwanda via the Ministry of Health, which integrates our annual Menstrual Hygiene Day and menstrual hygiene curriculum into the Baho Neza national health campaign. This partnership will allow our educational content to reach more teachers and students countrywide! Hear from a few of our newly trained teachers about the importance of menstrual hygiene education:
