D.R.E.W. Projects Kickstart MH Day 2019
#ItsTimeForAction and the D.R.E.W. Projects organization is ready to take action for menstrual hygiene education. As a global partner of Wash United, our nonprofit is proud to educate girls ages 10 to 19 years old about menstruation management and how menstrual hygiene is import to education, the economy, human rights, health, and the environment. Through planned workshops, small groups, pizza and cupcake socials, and on-the-spot MH Day pledges, D.R.E.W. Projects aim to reach 100 girls across Los Angeles County with the message, 'Let's start the conversation about menstruation!'
What is MH Day 2019?
MH Day 2019 is an annual celebration founded by Wash United that accelerates advocacy and action on menstrual hygiene worldwide. Known also as Menstrual Hygiene Day, MH Day happens on the 28th of May where local and global organizations use this day to start or continue the conversation about the stigmas around menstruation, why menstruation education matters for everyone, everywhere, and the global impact highlighting the lack of feminine hygiene products for women and girls.
How Will D.R.E.W. Projects Get Involved?
Under our D.R.E.W. Projects Women's Health Initiative, D.R.E.W. Projects will educate foster youth and homeless girls ages 10 to 19 years old across L.A. County to make sure no girl is left behind in the national and international conversation about menstrual hygiene. We hope to partner with youth homeless shelters in L.A. County to inspire these youth to get involved and tell their friends about menstruation management and for D.R.E.W. Projects to learn how menstruation management impacts foster and homeless girls. Additionally, we pledge to donate 100 feminine hygiene kits to women and girls experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles County.
