Research by Plan International UK found that forty-nine per cent of girls have missed an entire day of school because of their period. Fifty-nine per cent of these girls have made up a lie or an alternative excuse to avoid going to school1.

For this reason, Tiny Hands Baby Bank provide sanitary products, underwear, and feminine wipes to local schools, colleges and youth centres to ensure young girls are able to attend educational settings so their ability to gain an education is not hindered because of their period.
