The &SISTERS Foundation:
Making a difference
Millions of women and girls across the globe stay at home during their periods because they can’t afford period products.
We want to be part of changing that. Our purpose is to help tackle period poverty and provide support to women around the world, enabling them to have a better future.
Educating girls helps break the cycle of poverty and inequality.
