HOW DOES BULLYING START?
Do you know the main reason why girls drop out of school? Their period. Yes, most girls cannot afford menstrual products and are being bullied by boys when they have their period in school, which causes them to drop out. This problem is so significant that less than 10% of girls in South Africa pass 8th grade and continue their education. Girls ultimately remain in the same condition they grew up, staying below poverty level their whole life. Thankfully, we found the solution with reusable menstrual kits.
Take action with the Pads Against Bullying Campaign.
The Pads Against Bullying campaign will provide 5,000 girls in Africa with one reusable menstrual kit. Each menstrual kit lasts up to 2 years and includes reusable pads, underwear and other menstrual products. With the menstrual pads, girls won't be bullied by boys, will be able to stay in school and graduate. They will also be able to find employment after graduation, which automatically boosts the economical state of the region.

Long-term impact of Pads Against Bullying Campaign.
Our major goal for Pads Against Bullying is to provide reusable menstrual kits to stop the bullying for 5,000 girls in Africa every two months, so they can pursue their education and graduate. Our second goal is to increase employment for women in African communities. For this, Pads Against Bullying funding will also be used to provide employment for GirlStuff.Period and increase it by 20% every year until the drop-out rate has been reversed to single digits.
