Nothing will stop ME
Nothing Will Stop Me is a campaign about menstrual hygiene. It’s about removing myths around menstruation, confronting taboos and raising awareness.
It was created by Brighter Communities Worldwide in 2018 to tie in with Global Menstrual Hygiene Day – an annual awareness raising day on May 28th. We called it Nothing will stop ME because it focuses on improving the life opportunities, education and income of women and girls in Kenya.
Nothing will stop ME aims to help put an end to school dropouts and poor attendance because of inadequate menstrual hygiene management. We’re committed to preventing the loss of income and dignity of women labourers without access to safe and affordable sanitary products.
There are many issues aside from menstrual hygiene that impact on the lives of women and girls and prevent them from reaching their potential including Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), gender based violence and inequality around access to education. Nothing Will Stop Me has become our slogan to advocate for the rights of women and girls in the communities with whom we work. We do this through our community development programmes.
