Program

'Off Period Poverty'

Summary

‘Off Period Poverty’ Program aims to reduce period poverty, through innovation in (1) product usability, (2) awareness materials and methodology, and intervention in product's (3) affordability and (4) accessibility; as (rural) menstruators still lack access to menstrual products, awareness, hygiene facilities and waste management - which gets amplified in a financially underprivileged family having multiple menstruators.

Onpery® raises sponsorship through different channels and allocates the sponsored products to its program implementation partner - Oneform Foundation.

Oneform Foundation adopts communities of financially underprivileged menstruators and makes Onpery® menstrual products accessible all days at a subsidized price at a local center, and distributes the graphic novels at the local schools.

Option 2: Clinics

The waste can be dumbed into waste/garbage bins at medical clinics/centers, from where it will be managed as medical waste.
