CouldYou? is a proven non-profit in the menstrual health / hygiene space in developing countries providing menstrual health education and distribution of the CouldYou? menstrual cups to vulnerable girls in Africa; in rural and peri-urban communities. Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) is central to CouldYou? approach to results-based management. We have built long term relationships with local communities, NGO’s and the Ministries of Health, Education and Gender. Our work in girls and women empowerment has directly benefitted +50,000 women/girls with a focus in Mozambique, Ghana, and Liberia. In 2019 we provided menstrual health education and a CouldYou? menstrual cup to 16,000 vulnerable girls in Africa. Solving the issue of period poverty is not just a matter of providing a product. CouldYou? is committed to normalize menstruation and break stigmas and taboos, so when we distribute the cup we accompany the distribution with educational workshops for both boys and girls about the menstrual cups, menstruation, SRHR, consent, etc. We also work with celebrity ambassadors to encourage girls to try the cup. We’ve produced a music video, a comic book and a Public Service Announcement. We also hire marginalized women to make our cotton carrying bags; giving them an opportunity to set up a small business.
