The Cova Project
The Cova Project provides menstrual cups and menstrual health education to girls and women in developing communities in Liberia, Ghana, Uganda and Malawi. They do this to combat the global issue of “period poverty”. Period Poverty refers to the unaffordability and lack of access to basic sanitary products experienced by millions of women. It leads to girls dropping out of school, absenteeism when menstruating, reduced participation in life and diminished self worth, resulting in another barrier towards equality.
