Why Empower Her Africa

More than 800 million people menstruate daily. The world must act to end period poverty and guarantee clean water and sanitation for all by 2030. Promoting menstrual equity is key to supporting women and young girls. You can join us in taking action on this issue.

Access to safe and dignified menstruation is a fundamental need for women and girls. We envisions a world where every girl can learn, play, and safeguard her own health without experiencing stress, shame, or unnecessary barriers to information or supplies during menstruation. Meeting the hygiene needs of all adolescent girls and women in all settings is enables human rights, dignity, and public health.

ADE works to improve girls’ and women’s menstrual health and hygiene in four areas: social support, knowledge and skills, and access to absorbent materials and supportive supplies
