Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower girls to stay in school by providing feminine hygiene products. By assisting these girls in India, they can take hold of their futures and continue their education.


The Dahlia Initiative provides access to culturally appropriate feminine hygiene products in India. In these areas, there is a common taboo around the use of tampons concerning a girl’s virginity. Supplying these girls with leak-proof underwear will enable them to safely take care of their menstrual cycle, continue their traditional practices of abstinence, as well as feel more confident in themselves. By providing easier access to menstrual products, girls are more likely to stay in school. It is estimated that 23 million girls in India drop out of school every year after they start menstruating.  We believe that every girl is entitled to education, and by supplying feminine hygiene products, we will impact their futures.
