Global Ending Poverty Initiative
The Global Ending Poverty Initiative aims to address key issues that perpetuate poverty and lack of access to basic sanitation services globally. More specifically, it focuses on improving access to sanitary products and menstrual hygiene resources for women and girls. Currently, many females cannot afford menstrual products due to economic and social barriers. Additionally, 2.3 billion people worldwide live without basic sanitation services like toilets, handwashing facilities, or waste management. This lack of access and resources leads to poor menstrual hygiene which can cause physical health issues like reproductive and urinary tract infections. By improving access to affordable sanitary products and menstrual health education, providing basic sanitation services, and breaking down social stigmas, the Global Ending Poverty Initiative seeks to uplift and empower women, girls, and communities as a whole. But in order to truly end this cycle of poverty and lack of access, people and organizations from all demographics must come together in support of this cause.
