On today’s episode of The Bloody Truth, in partnership with Malini's Girl Tribe , our President, Megha Desai talks about why 23% percent of girls in India drop out of school when they begin menstruating. This critically undermines a girl's potential in her education and in her ability to have a successful life. And it’s SO preventable - so let’s change this together! Tell us if you or someone you know has experienced their education being stopped or limited simply because they menstruate. MissMalini

We have been hard at work in India since April to prevent the spread of COVID-19 while also providing employment for women in rural communities. With the pandemic set to last for another 12-18 months, this work continues to be vital, but we need your help to reach our goal of producing and freely distributing 100,000 hand-sewn masks per month!
