Starting June 2021, Asociația Pe Stop has been implementing menstrual hygiene classes in Castelu for teenage girls and women.

During these sessions, participants are welcomed into a safe space where they find out via games and informal discussions how their bodies work, how to safely manage their menstruation and how to choose the right period hygiene products.

Each of the participants receives a personal hygiene kit after the class. “Most importantly, we aim to create a climate of confidence that allows participants to ask the questions they didn’t feel comfortable asking elsewhere” says Irina Vasilescu, president of Asociația Pe Stop.
