Girls in developing countries often drop out of school when they reach
puberty because they have no access to feminine hygiene products.
The MoonCatcher Project provide reusable, washable, menstrual pads that can be worn without underwear to girls in the poorest communities worldwide. These pads make going to school while menstruating possible and this helps keep girls in school.
Educating girls is the most effective means of improving their lives and fostering economic development in developing countries.
The work of the MoonCatcher Project makes it possible for girls to stay in school. Getting an education helps girls marry later, have fewer children at a later age, and gain financial independence which helps themselves and their families.
