Support Our Mission to Make Menstrual Hygiene and Health Accessible for Everyone!
Global Hand Charity has partnered with Edith Cowan University, Rotary District 3220, and Emflower, an Australian brand of menstrual products, in support of creating a sustainable impact through humanitarian projects that will empower and uplift students. Together we hope to address the critical issues surrounding period poverty and menstrual hygiene in rural parts of Sri Lanka. This fundamental human right often goes overlooked in third-world countries and students have to forgo their schooling during their period due to limited resources, inadequate menstruation education and stigmatised cultural censorship.
Creating a Sustainable Impact in Sri Lanka with ECU, Rotary and Emflower

Visits With Healthcare Professionals
Students from rural communities will be invited for checkups from healthcare professionals to receive advice and referrals for their conditions.

Each student will receive an educational Menstrual Health Guide curated by ECU PRAC students.
