The Red Box Project
In May 2018 Louise from the South East London branch of The Red Box Project came to tell us all about The Red Box Project which we will be supporting by collecting items to donate the scheme at each meeting.
About The Red Box Project
The Red Box Project aims to quietly ensure that no young woman misses school or suffers embarrassment because she has her period.
It gives young women in need – whether for financial or social reasons – the reassurance of enough sanitary pads for their entire period plus a couple left over for next time. This is what makes it special.
It works by putting a red box filled with pads and pants into schools. Students take what’s needed, and then it gets topped up again, with donations from the community of women supporting the project.
This is a very simple, no frills project and is entirely funded by community kindness, woman to young woman.
How Can You Help
Donate pads and pants!
They specifically need sanitary pads of all absorbancies (but especially winged), night pads and tampons, plus black underwear for all sizes from age 9 upwards.
For information of other donation points, and for other ways that you can help, please visit the South East London Red Box Project Facebook Page.
