Ada & Albert's Period Box Campaign
Everyday young girls in the Bromley borough are facing the realities of period poverty; not having access to the products needed for their monthly menstruation.
Ada & Albert have donated 3 period boxes to local schools in the Bromley borough to help the young women who face each month without basic necessities which no one should go without.

In the UK, 1 in 10 girls can not afford to buy menstrual products, while 1 in 7 have struggled to afford them (according to a representative survey of 1,000 girls and young women aged 14-21 by Plan International UK.)
How does Period Poverty affect girls in school?
Young women affected by period poverty are missing school because they have no access to products.
An estimated 49% of girls have missed school due to their periods (2019 study)
These women experiencing period poverty turn to socks, clean wash cloths and cardboard to help them through each month.
