Help Girls Stay In School With The o.b.® Share It Forward Program

It’s amazing the things we take for granted. I remember the days when I didn’t want to go to school because of PMS or cramps but I never stayed home because of my period. Some of my friends would stay home but it was usually because of severe cramps. But, imagine having to stay home from school because you didn’t have the adequate sanitary protection. Sadly, for millions of girls around the world, once puberty hits, school becomes an obstacle because they can’t afford proper sanitary protection. Many girls stop going to school and don’t graduate, putting them at a disadvantage to their male counterparts.

In 2008, Huru® International developed a cost-effective solution to this often-overlooked crisis. Through the production of Huru® Kits, the organization aims to provide girls with the resources and knowledge they need, including sanitary protection, to complete their education and safeguard their health. Huru® Kits are provided to at-risk girls at no cost. Each Huru® Kit comes packaged in a drawstring bag that doubles as a backpack, and includes: Eight reusable sanitary pads, three pairs of underwear, detergent-grade soap to wash the sanitary pads, a re-sealable, waterproof bag to safely store used sanitary pads, educational insert focused on proper Huru® pad care and usage, and life-saving HIV/AIDS prevention information.

The o.b.® Brand hopes that o.b.® Users, and like-minded women, will help raise $25,000 for Huru® International, which translates into 1,000 Huru® Kits (or 8,000 reusable sanitary pads), valued at $25 each. For every user who shares the message about Huru® International’s mission with their network of friends, the o.b.® brand will donate $1 to Huru®.
