Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world – ranked 144 out of 196 by the World Bank.
In Malawi, 50% of the population live below the poverty line and 25% live in extreme poverty.
Period Poverty is defined as “the lack of access to sanitary products due to financial constraints”.
Most women and girls that we speak to in Malawi cannot afford sanitary products.
80% of Malawi’s population lives in rural areas and period poverty is a widespread and unspoken problem.
54% of females we have given cups to have only ever used cloth rags for their periods.
This is why we started UFULU and why we give menstrual cups for free.
Ufulu believes that sanitary products are a basic human right.
“I started UFULU with the dream of giving women and girls the chance to work and go to school full time, without the shame and discomfort of using rags for their periods.”
Widge Woolsey – Founder of UFULU
