Be Girl, Inc.
- New York
Be Girl is a social enterprise focused on empowering women by design, dedicated to creating extremely affordable, aspirational and high performance products that support women and girls’ autonomy and generate opportunities to radically improve their quality of life.
Lack of access to sanitary products prevents millions of girls from completing their education. UNESCO estimates that 1 in 10 African adolescent girls miss school during menstruation and drop out because of menstruation-related issues, such as the inaccessibility of affordable sanitary protection, the social taboos, and the culture of silence that surrounds it.
Be Girl intervenes in a key leverage point to break the poverty trap, by offering adaptable and high performance Menstrual Management products that empowers women to close the gender gap and take control of their heath and quality of life.
