Help Provide Reproductive Education
There are 113 million adolescent girls in India who are at risk of dropping out of school because of their periods. That’s not ok! Menstruation is considered a taboo subject, and because of this, many girls are unaware of how to care for themselves during their period. Ayzh is a female-owned social enterprise working to provide menstrual education for girls in India. Their workshops cover reproductive health and the trained instructors provide the girls with hygiene kits that are built in factories employing women. Help bring this important project to life for 1,500+ girls across India.
Ayzh (pronounced “eyes”) operates on a mission to bring simplicity and dignity to women’s health. They manufacture and distribute low-cost, high-quality health products that care carefully designed to meet the unique needs of women throughout their reproductive health life-cycle.
