Fundraising for UGANDA Menstrual Hygiene Project
A journey to the roots of femininity and life… the movie ‘The Moon Inside You’ is a fresh look at the menstruation taboo that defines the political and social reality of both women and men in a more profound way than society might be willing to admit…. the award winning documentary approaches the subject through both personal and collective references, thus challenging our preconceived idea of womanhood.

For women and girls to live healthy, productive and dignified lives, it’s essential that they are able to manage menstrual bleeding effectively; something that western communities largely take for granted.In Uganda, PLAN for Girls are supporting local women to make low-cost sanitary pads so that women and girls can afford to use these products. It’s a win-win approach, as women have gained a source of income and new skills, and their female customers now have access to an essential hygiene product.
As well as addressing women’s practical needs, PLAN for Girls is also promoting better awareness among women and men to reduce embarrassment, cultural practices or taboos around menstruation that negatively affect the lives of women and girls.
