Friends of Irise

We’d like to say a huge thanks to everyone who came to the amazing Legacy Conference in Leeds in November and helped us collect three years with of sanitary products to donate to those who need them!

Feeling inspired by the conference’s superb campaign on menstrual hygiene? Want to get more involved in working on gender equity issues around menstrual health?

Our affiliate, Friends of Irise, do amazing work for menstrual health in East Africa, where it is estimated 1 in 10 girls will miss school due to their period and applications are currently open for their Agents of Change training programme!
