#MHDay2022 - Changing perceptions on menstrual health
We’re excited to launch a new BRIDGE cohort to support organizations working in menstrual health and hygiene (MHH).
In partnership with The Case for Her and WASH United, we’re supporting 43 organizations all over the world to increase their digital fundraising and advocacy skills.
No person should be held back because of their period. It’s time to take action for a truly equal world.
We are happy to support these changemakers to raise awareness and champion education around menstrual health and hygiene.
Learning more about the #MHDay2022 cohort
More than 250 organisations expressed interest in joining our #MHDay2022 cohort and we were happy to double the initial capacity of the programme.
Our six-month BRIDGE programme revolves around Menstrual Hygiene Day (MH Day) on May 28 and it will be split into two phases:
- Phase 1 runs from March to May and will focus on strengthening participants’ capacity to take part in the Menstrual Hygiene Day 2022 campaign using digital channels and engaging with traditional media.
- Phase 2 runs from June to August and will focus on strengthening the organisation’s digital fundraising skills, including digital fundraising from everyday donors. Participants will learn how to transition an engaged audience to become philanthropic supporters, and ultimately how to raise more funds online.
Participating organizations are already engaged from the first session and we can't wait to support them on their digital journey.
We are planning to share more details about the participants’ journey as part of the cohort over the next six months so keep an eye out for our blogs and social media posts.

In a world of growing uncertainty, small and local non-profit organisations often find themselves with competing priorities and struggle to plan how to allocate their available resources. Despite the increasing demand for their vital work, they are not always able to allocate the funds they receive to strategic planning and future growth.
Environmental organisations around the world are working hard to tackle climate change, often with limited resources. What’s the role of digital communications in this battle and what support do they need?
We talked to Chakara Wheeler from the Community Foundation of Greater Flint to find out more about her work and her experience being part of the BRIDGE programme.
