A recent study conducted by Always revealed that, since the COVID-19 pandemic,over 1 in 3 young people feel less confident because they’ve missed after school activities1 nearly 1 out of 3 parents are worried about their ongoing ability to afford period products - an issue known as period poverty.2
When girls don’t have access to period products, not only do they not feel protected, but it also puts their confidence, dignity and education at risk. They’re less likely to be able to participate in their education & other activities, and if they are, they’re likely to feel distracted and unable to focus on reaching their full potential.
Despite the ongoing challenges, Always wants to show girls that they’re #SupportedAlways and help #EndPeriodPoverty, so that periods don’t hold young people back.
Always has championed girls’ confidence for 35+ years and has donated more than 50 million pads since they started their #EndPeriodPoverty campaign in the US. This spring, Always continues the good work.
You can help us do more! Join Always to help keep girls focused on learning and engaging in the activities that help them build their confidence.
