Teen's Dream
  1. My dream is to stop period poverty. It hurts seeing that there are girls out there who have no means to buy sanitary products when it is time for their cycle. Unfortunately, they end up using unhygienic materials to control the flow of menstrual blood. The same unhygienic materials that will cause infections and other serious medical conditions. Other girls don’t even go to school when their cycle comes in attempt of running away from shame and discomfort. I have experienced this a couple of times hence I want to change other girls lives for better good. I want to create an organization whereby I will distribute sanitary products to less priviledged girls in less priviledged places. In the same manner, I want to teach girls about the importance of menstrual hygiene and I want them to embrace their nature without any shame or discomfort but with confidence with the right tools, which are proper sanitary products.
The UN SDG my dream most relates to
