ABOUT RUBY CUP

OUR SOCIAL MISSION
In poor regions around the world, menstruation is an overlooked problem. Women and girls cannot afford sanitary products every month, they are afraid of leaking and as a result stay home from school or work. The UNDP in 2008 has declared menstrual hygiene to be one of the main causes for girls to drop-out from school. It’s a barrier to their life opportunities.
Buy One, Give One
Ruby Cup is a solution to this problem. We are based in Berlin and Nairobi, Kenia. For every Ruby Cup that we sell in industrialized countries, we give one to a girl in need and educate girls in East Africa about menstrual hygiene and basic reproductive health.
