Many NGOs or private businesses may be interested in introducing a project on e.g. menstrual cups, but have no idea where to start: how to do it? how to measure the impact? or estimate how much it would cost? We analyse your organisation’s activities and context, develop the relevant tools, write up the intervention design, and train your staff on everything needed to get the intervention up and running. The goal is usually to fully integrate the intervention into the other work of your organisation, so that it builds upon existing structures and programming for minimal extra cost.

MHM Refugee Pilot Intervention
The intervention tests the feasibility of introducing menstrual cups and reusable pads, as well as to pilot test the methods as a component of ZOA’s menstrual health management and WASH programme in Rhino Refugee Settlement in West Nile sub-region of northern Uganda. Both South Sudanese refugees as well as females within the host community are targeted. The AFRIpads reusable pads and Ruby Cups are donated towards this pilot project as part of a wider collaboration between ZOA, WoMena, AFRIpads and Ruby Cups to provide sustainable menstrual health management methods to girls and women within refugee settlements.
