We are Aislynn MacLean and Izzy Lapalme, grade 12 students from Ottawa, Canada who wish to make a difference for women and girls in our community. We attend Cedar Ridge High School. In conjunction with a course at our school, we are tasked to create and implement a solution to a health-related problem. We have chosen period poverty. Many people face barriers when accessing period hygiene products. For many of us, we are unable to relate to the struggles others face when it comes to a lack of sanitary products. Menstruation is difficult enough without this added hurdle.
