Covid-19 has caused a widespread lack of transportation and commerce in the rural areas of Mongolia. This has caused shortages of many products, including those for feminine hygiene.
Source of Steppe has implemented a project, thanks to the support of FSSN NGO, to provide 80 teenage girls and women with disabilities with ECO monthly period products. ECO monthly period products are nature-oriented and consumer-friendly. In the 2nd school dorm in Ulaanhus soum’s 4th bagh, steps are being taken in order to improve period education for teenage girls and
teach good hygiene habits. By learning this, they can understand the importance of period health and prevent themselves from future illness regarding their reproductive health.
