Yorkits Workshop

Tackling period poverty

Scroll to explore

Help tackle period poverty and mark International Women’s Day by creating washable, re-usable feminine hygiene kits for girls in developing countries as part of the annual Yorkits workshop.

Run by Rotary York Ainsty, Yorkits is a hands-on community project bringing women and girls from York and the region together, to make feminine hygiene kits which change the lives of young girls by keeping them in education during menstruation.

The workshops are a chance for women of all ages to come together to give girls across the globe access to education, health, hygiene and dignity.

This year’s annual Yorkits workshops will take place on Tuesday 5 March, with sessions taking place at 10am – 12.30pm and 1.30pm – 4pm. All materials and equipment will be provided and refreshments will be available.

Places at the workshops are limited and free tickets need to be booked in advance. Tickets are available HERE or by calling 01904 557200.

There is a suggested donation of £3, payable on the day, to cover the costs of materials and to help towards seed-funding community self-help groups overseas to make kits out of local materials.
