We are aware that there is no one answer that will work for all communities. Our team went to Tanzania for this reason: to organize workshops, hear about the specific menstrual health issues these communities confront, and to figure out how to best handle this crucial and delicately culturally charged subject.
We had the opportunity of meeting with groups that share our passion for women's health in addition to meeting amazing ladies through our workshops in the Dar el Salaam area. Through our pioneering work and outreach, we have forged alliances with a number of organizations that serve the same target audience in Tanzania.
