2019 Future Anything Grand Final, Highly Commended
Cassandra & Ruby, Year 9, MacGregor State High School

We’re passionate about providing a solution to a global problem known as period poverty. Period poverty is “the lack of access to sanitary products, menstrual hygiene education, toilets, hand washing facilities, and/or waste management”.

It is a harrowing problem that we believe no female should have to face but, there are 27% of girls and more than a quarter of women in Australia who do every month.

Here at OvaryAct we hand-make unique, stylish heat-pack all with different designs suited to any gender, age and or personality. Our profits then goes towards making sanitation boxes. OvaryAct sanitation boxes are boxes filled with a pack of pads, tampons, one small bottle of hand sanitiser and facial wipes. These are what we will be donating to the women who live in Brisbane and suffer period poverty by our distributor, Mt Gravatt Community Centre.
