Period poverty is a silent crisis affecting countless women and girls in Ghana, limiting their access to essential menstrual hygiene products and impacting their health, dignity, and opportunities.

The T.O.M Project is dedicated to addressing this critical issue by providing free period care products and driving impactful education on period care and menstruation.
