    About This Project

    It is estimated that up to 23% of schoolgirls miss school during their menstrual periods in Sierra Leone. In Phase 1 of our field research we found that lack of access to adequate menstrual hygiene resources is one of the main reasons for missing school. Baseline data collection is currently underway. We are ready to start Phase 2 of the study which will focus on evaluating the effects of providing reusable pads on educational and subjective outcomes.
