SisterFriend

Mission Statement

SisterFriend is an organization by women for women dedicated to sustaining feminine health by providing vulnerable women and girls with feminine care products.

About SisterFriend

SisterFriend envisions a world where every woman is treated with dignity, respect and receives the right to hygienically manage their menstruation wherever they are located. 

  • SisterFriend aims to support menstrual hygiene management for vulnerable women and girls through the following programs and services:
  • partnering with organizations and individuals to directly distribute feminine hygiene products raising awareness of menstrual hygiene issues through our advocacy initiatives
  • providing leadership opportunities to young women in our community

Women living in poverty typically know where to find a safe place to sleep or a hot meal to eat. But when it comes to taking care of their feminine hygiene needs, they often have nowhere to turn.

Tampons and sanitary pads usually top the list of needs at shelters, since they're pricey and supporters don't often donate them. That is where SisterFriend comes in. We provide our shelter and after-school program partners with the feminine care products they desperately need.

Our goal is not only to restore a small portion of a woman dignity, but to assist in the process of understanding that every woman and girl deserves respect and is important regardless of their financial circumstance.
