Help low-income menssurators in Singapore get through their periods dignified and worry free.
While lack of access to period products is typically associated with menstruators in other countries, period poverty isn’t just someone else’s problem. It’s happening right here in Singapore.
When menstruators don’t have access to period products, not only do they not feel protected, but it also puts their confidence, dignity and education at risk. They’re less likely to be able to participate in their education & other activities, and if they are, they’re likely to feel distracted and unable to focus on reaching their full potential. For that, Go With The Flow (GWTF) aims to end period poverty in Singapore through sanitary pad donation and distribution.
