Who We Are

One in five American girls and young women skip school or miss work because they cannot afford sanitary pads or tampons to stay healthy and clean during their period. Women in Training (WIT), Inc. aims to #EndPeriodPoverty.

 

Impoverished girls, women and non-binary youth often use socks, toilet paper, paper towels and washcloths to stay healthy and clean during menstruation. Even worse, they use the same tampon or sanitary pad repeatedly, which can lead to toxic shock syndrome and bacterial infections.  

 

To alleviate period poverty, Women in Training, Inc. provides monthly donations of #WITKITS® -- canvas bags full of menstrual and hygiene products -- to at-risk girls, young women and non-binary youth.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, it’s safer to shop online. Please order from Amazon using this link https://smile.amazon.com/ch/84-2297948 and .5 percent of your dollars spent will go to help Women In Training - WIT provide free period products to underserved girls and nonbinary youth.

Women in Training assembled a diverse group of powerful and passionate girls and women representing the full spectrum of age, gender identity, socioeconomic status, marital status, ethnicity, language, and education level to bring awareness to #PeriodPoverty by creating this short video.

Special thanks to Josh Carples of Terrible Master Films for generously providing pro bono film consultation, directing and production services!

A crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic hits marginalized communities hardest. Menstruating girls, women, and nonbinary youth continue to have a monthly flow, but no money to buy sanitary pads.

The brave Dr. Yvette Hochberg [pictured with WIT co-founder Brooke Bennett] risked her life to deliver Women In Training #WITKITS full of menstrual, hygiene, and dental products to families at Reality & Truth Ministries, a rescue mission for homeless and displaced families. Also pictured is a photo of one of the young women who appreciated receiving a #WITKIT.

Dr. Lee A. Farrow, History Professor at Auburn University at Montgomery, along with a team of volunteers, faithfully makes gorgeous bracelets to go in each WITKIT®.

Dr. Farrow personalizes each bracelet with a butterfly charm and an empowering word, such as beauty, gifted, peace, power, faith and adorable. After all, menstruating youth need free period products, as well as love!

To help purchase beads to make the bracelets, please go to our Amazon wish list.

Menstrual Education Program

Ssshhh... The "P" word is the best-kept medical secret! Even though half of the population have a period for most of their lives, no one talks openly about it.

WIT aims to end the stigma and silence about the monthly menses by facilitating 30-minute menstrual education presentations to community groups, religious organizations and schools.
