    The Pad Project is a nonprofit organization founded by a group of high school students and their teacher dedicated to the principle that “a period should end a sentence, not a girl’s education.” All over the world, particularly in low and middle-income communities, one of the reasons why students drop out of school at a young age is a lack of access to affordable and hygienic menstrual products. Fifty percent of the world’s population menstruates. The Pad Project’s job is to ensure that one hundred percent of them have the tools to manage it. 

    In order to raise awareness about this critical human rights issue, The Pad Project committed to raise the funds to send a pad manufacturing machine, along with a year’s worth of raw materials to a village in rural India, and to document the process on film. That film, PERIOD. END OF SENTENCE., won the 2019 Academy Award for Best Documentary Short and sparked a global conversation about menstrual equity. The documentary not only depicts how the installation of a pad manufacturing machine provides access to affordable and hygienic menstrual products but also sustains a micro-economy for the women who operate it.

    Since the film’s Netflix release and Oscar win, we have received requests for pad machines from diverse individuals and organizations from over 94 countries. Please join The Pad Project in our mission to create and cultivate local and global partnerships to end period stigma and to empower women worldwide.
