OUR MISSION

1 in 4 girls start their periods with no knowledge of whats happening to them. Its time to talk about periods.

OPENING

CONVERSATION

We want to destigmatise periods by encouraging everyone to talk about it openly.  On It aims to do this by getting kids talking to each other in a friendly environment where they feel safe. 

INFORMED

EDUCATION

With our network of experts, our cards will hold all the information needed to learn the period basics. We want to bust the myths surrounding periods. Making the youth more informed will help them make healthier decisions about their bodies.

WHY ARE WE MAKING A FUSS?

Worldwide periods are stigmatised. But what's so weird about them? Periods are the female bodies natural way of keeping itself happy and healthy.

Menstruation is a taboo topic.

Unless we start opening up about our bodies, we will never be fully confident in them. We need to start being honest with each other. It's time to break the taboo. 

Ending Period Poverty.

Our indiegogo campaign allows you to buy packs for schools.
At On It we want to ensure that people of all backgrounds are equipped with the correct knowledge about menstruation. Armed with this knowledge, children are more likely to sustain healthy menstrual hygiene and seek help when needed. We will soon be launching a 'buy one, send one' scheme where a low income school will get a pack for each pack bought.
