Always and Tampax: Protecting the Futures of Girls
Today, more than 600 million girls live in the developing world. Many of these girls miss several days of school each month because they lack basic sanitary protection to manage their periods.
Protecting Futures works with partner organizations to provide puberty education, sanitary protection, and sanitary facilities to help vulnerable girls stay in school. In conjunction with its partners and other external thought-leading organizations, Protecting Futures supports research on the issue and the impact of the interventions the program enables.
Since 2006, Protecting Futures has worked with nine partners in 20 countries, reaching more than 720,000 girls in the developing world.
