Kenya +

This fall, co-founder Amber Fawson traveled with Outreach to the World to the village of Kiminini, Kenya to distribute Saalt Cups and teach about menstrual hygiene. Through their efforts, 176 orphaned children and teens are placed within family structures and provided with clothing, schools supplies, health care, and supplemental nutrition to support them through high school and vocational programs.

Nepal +

In the rural town of Dang, Nepal, we work with HER International educational programs to fund scholarships for girls in need and provide Saalt Cups for students and their mothers working toward self-reliance through social enterprise.

Sudan +

In Darfur, soccer is bringing hope to refugee women who work tirelessly to hold their communities together. In partnership with iACT, a Los Angeles-based non-profit providing humanitarian aid through refugee-led solutions, Saalt provided menstrual cups to the players of the first-ever all female refugee national soccer team, Darfur United Women’s Team (DUWT).

United States (all) +

Leading our U.S. donation efforts, Period.org distributes cups to domestic organizations like the Hopscotch Health Foundation, which tackles youth diabetes through nutrition and fitness initiatives. This summer, Saalt Cups were distributed to Native American communities at the Blackfeet Reservation in northwest Montana along with education in menstrual hygiene management (MHM).

Our Distribution Partners

Working together

We seek out charity partners that are already in the trenches, working tirelessly to improve the lives of girls and women worldwide. We leverage our resources to support their goals and boost their impact so together, we can create positive change that is tangible and far-reaching.

Women empowered to live their element can change the world.

With our charity partners, we provide reusable period care to keep girls in school and enable women to pursue their dreams.

Period Poverty & Education

Education for one girl can break the cycle of poverty for generations.

A small investment in reusable period care allows a girl to complete her education and reach her potential. Educated women lift their families and invest back into their local economy, bringing change to entire communities.

When we started Saalt, we knew girls' education would be a key part of our social mission. Education has done more to shape our confidence, prosperity, and fulfillment in in life than any other single factor. Yet so many girls are halted early in their educational pursuits. The loss of potential is heartbreaking, and yet the solution is simple. We're passionate about the power one cup has to help a girl finish school, provide for her family, and afford her the confidence to care for her needs. We envision a world where our daughters and girls everywhere are limited by nothing but their own hard work and resolve to accomplish their dreams.”
