Share the Dignity

After reading in 2015 that homeless women Australia-wide were making sanitary pads out of toilet paper because they couldn't afford to buy them, Rochelle Courtenay felt a call to action.

She started a small sanitary collection in her local neighbourhood and donated the items to a women's shelter. The not-for-profit charity Share the Dignity was born, providing homeless and at-risk women around Australia with sanitary items.

Rochelle, affectionately known as "Pad lady" didn't set out to be a social entrepreneur yet her work is helping to eliminate period poverty!
