Always® and Walmart® Join Forces To Help #EndPeriodPoverty And Ensure Girls Can Stay In The Activities They LoveSource: Business Wire
Program Includes Providing Pads & Support to Girls’ Teams in All 50 States
The program was kicked off in
Always understands that puberty can be a difficult and confusing time when girls’ confidence may plummet, with the onset of menstruation marking the lowest moment for many girls. This decrease in confidence is so much worse for girls that lack access to period protection, which is often referred to as “period poverty.” Period poverty can force her to miss out on important confidence-building experiences in the classroom or in after-school activities. These activities should be something to look forward to, and not something a girl loses out on because she doesn’t have access to period products. Missing out on things like this can limit her from reaching her full potential during puberty and beyond.
“We’re so excited to help ensure that fewer girls miss the
extracurricular activities they enjoy most due to lack of access to
period products,” shared
The program is a continuation of Always’ #EndPeriodPoverty program that
launched nationally in August last year. Now, with the support of
Always®, the world's leader in feminine protection, offers a wide range of feminine pads, wipes and liners designed to fit different body types, period flows and preferences. For over 35 years, Always has been empowering millions of girls globally through puberty and confidence education, and the provision of products to girls in need. More recently, the Always #LikeAGirl campaign has furthered these efforts by helping tackle key societal barriers to girls’ confidence. Together, Always believes we can create a world where puberty is a moment that propels girls forward into confident womanhood. Please visit www.always.com for more information.
