How Saalt is Helping
Our Impact Pillars
Everyone should have the right to a safe and dignified period. We empower individuals with the knowledge and long-term solutions to improve their menstrual health, which increases gender equality and opens conversations that bring awareness and break down social stigmas.· Globally, more than 2.3 billion people lack basic sanitation services, such as clean water and soap in bathrooms. · Access to latrines can enable girls’ education, women’s mobility and sexual security, according to UN Women.
Access to period care products and facilities has impacts that go far beyond the classroom, which is why Saalt invests in communities through product donations as well as projects supporting clean water facilities like latrines and boreholes.

Where Our Partners Work
Period Poverty & Education
Education for one girl can break the cycle of poverty for generations.
“When I started Saalt, I knew girls' education would be a key part of our social mission. Education has done more to shape our confidence, prosperity, and fulfillment in life than any other single factor. Yet so many girls are halted early in their educational pursuits. The loss of potential is heartbreaking, and yet the solution is simple. We're passionate about the power one cup has to help a girl finish school, provide for her family, and afford her the confidence to care for her needs. I envision a world where our daughters and girls everywhere are limited by nothing but their own hard work and resolve to accomplish their dreams.”— CHERIE, SAALT FOUNDER & MOTHER OF DAUGHTERS
