A world without period poverty and stigma is possible. But to achieve our joint goal by 2030, we cannot wait for the Covid-19 pandemic to end. We need to step up action and investment in menstrual health and hygiene (MHH) NOW!
By 2030, it is possible to create a world where no woman or girl is held back because she menstruates, but only if we step up investment in menstrual health and hygiene now. That is the key message of this new infographic.

“A garden is a grand teacher”, horticulturist Gertrude Jekyll wrote. School administrators obviously agree because the nation is in the midst of a school gardening boom. The number of school gardens nearly doubled between 2013 and 2015. More than 7,000 American schools now have a garden.
Most teachers start a school garden program in elementary schools, and grow flowers or veggies. Some include unique features, such as chickens, orchards, and aquaponics systems (where students raise fish and use the fishes’ waste to feed plants). Teachers use gardening activities to teach nearly every discipline, including health, nutrition, science, math, environmental studies, language arts, art, and social studies. Students in one California school sow native plants to learn what the state looked like prior to European settlement. In other schools, kids test soil composition, learn about food chains and ecosystems, measure plants as they grow, calculate the perimeter and area of garden beds, and keep gardening journals.
Researchers examining how gardening impacts students have found that school gardens–sometimes called “living classrooms”–cultivate more than just plants. Students who participate in school gardens are on average more engaged in what they’re learning, boast higher science test scores, and eat more fruits and vegetables than their non-gardening peers.

This infographic outlines the worst natural disasters in human history, and identifies how we can best minimize the impact of these disasters. A natural hazard does not need to become a natural disaster on the scale we hear about so often in the news.
For example, the Tsunami in the Indian ocean caused upwards of 280,000 deaths. MissionSafety’s research discovered that this figure could have been reduced if people were taught how to react to a tsunami. Education can play a key role in saving lives.
Hopefully this infographic offers you some clarity on how you can help after a natural disaster. If you’re planning on donating money to a cause make sure you know exactly where it’s going and avoid charities who spend more than 20% of your donation on ‘admin’.
