Free Periods Campaign

Free Periods is a not-for-profit campaign group started by Amika George. We want to live in a world where no young person has to miss school because they menstruate.

Our mission at Free Periods is to make that a reality.

It’s simple. No one should miss out on an education because they don’t have access to pads or tampons. But period poverty is widespread across the globe, and we need Governments and policy makers to take action to ensure that all children can go to school and learn. This is about equality. Equal access to education and opportunities for all.

At Free Periods, we have helped to make this a reality in England. In 2019, the Government committed to funding period products in every single state school and college in England. The scheme began in 2020, but we have more work to do to end period poverty for good.
