Project Description

#HERBODI was founded in 2017 with one goal, to create a lifestyle brand that aids a gender that has been continuously targeted globally. Sadly, still in some regions of the world, women have been seen on a whole as an inferior gender from birth, from lack of access to important sanitary products to not having certain rights to our own bodies. But we are not here to preach a feminist agenda, we are here to help even if just a little, and to assist the organizations that do the real work. Helping women and children in various countries, access proper hygienic healthcare to better benefit their lives.

#HERBODI was founded by Monique Keithanne. As an activist, Monique has always been a very passionate advocate for human rights, health, and education. Monique grew up in Jamaica where she saw firsthand a 3rd world affected by the lack of access to certain resources. This lead her to participate in many community-oriented projects and sit on planning boards various non-profits in her adult life, which in turn lead her to create the company #HERBODI.

As we evolve our main goal is to educate as well as provide. To effectively do this we need to properly run marketing campaigns that promote and establish our brand. With this being said, your backing will directly go towards efforts to accomplish this task. This includes but not limited to social, physical and or television marketing, product shoots and other various media. Currently, #HERBODI needs to meet a $10,000 goal in order to sufficiently educate the masses on the importance of supporting our cause. In turn, this will bring knowledge, which will lead to many women, children and larger organizations getting the necessary and sometimes life-saving, menstruation supplies they need.

The price of poor menstrual hygiene can be devastating, even deadly. It is linked to high rates of cervical cancer in India; in developing countries, infections caused by the use of filthy, unwashed rags are rampant. Here in the U.S, women who are homeless or incarcerated face similar risks when they can’t access or afford sanitary products. There has been many cases where women have even been known to trade food stamps for tampons.

Now is the time to act. Help us help many gain meaningful access to something every woman can relate. A very human menstrual cycle. Find out more about our organization at www.herbodi.com

The Project FAQs

There is always a risk of failure to every organization, but for us, it’s not the fear that we will fail as an organization. But it’s the risk that we fail to educate. A UNESCO report estimates that one in ten girls in Sub-Saharan Africa misses school during their menstrual cycle. By some estimates, this equals as much as twenty percent of a given school year. Many girls drop out of school altogether once they begin menstruating. Should young women miss twenty percent of school days in a given year due to a lack of facilities or a lack of information or a lack of sanitary products?
