PERIOD Empowerment Network

Published on 15.08.2018 at 00:00

At TERRAM PACIS, we are enthusiastic to start our work on PERIOD Empowerment Network, a two years project which seeks to improve youth workers knowledge, skills and attitudes on menstrual health and hygiene, and increase youth awareness about the female body, relationships, sexual practices, sexuality, etc. and futher, advocate for menstruation education in youth organisations and schools.

 

Funded by  the Education, Culture and Audiovisual Executive Agency, the project contributes to the follow-up of the European Union's Gender Action Plan, with a focus on Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment. It is a unique and powerful menstruation education project in empowering young people and building their capacities to continuously learn; raise awareness on menstrual health & hygiene.

 

The idea that menstruation is dirty, shameful and unmentionable keeps girls and women away from school and out of work. A woman without access to sanitary products may have to stay at home during her periods, or risks losing her job for getting off to change her pad, provided there're facilities for her to manage her menstruation at all. Those with convenient facilities, go to great lengths to hide periods.


The project promotes the European Union's values, which aim at creating a world where the rights of girls and women are claimed, valued and respected by all. Therefore, the project also aims at re-educating our societies about menstruation, re-frame its purpose and allow women to be women without any stigma or discrimination.
