We have been sending free period packs to people and organisations all over Aotearoa since Feb 2021. In Aug 2022 we made the tough choice to focus on our community around us, (this encompasses the cities and suburbs of Wellington (Northern, Southern, Eastern and Western) as well as the Wairarapa area). We feel that this way we can make a bigger impact in the fight against period poverty.
EWA's goal of reducing period inequity in our community, this encompasses the cities and suburbs of Wellington (Northern, Southern, Eastern and Western as well as the Wairarapa area). EWA's goal is to of reducing period inequity in our community with the strategic intent of having single-use period baskets in venues across our community and gifting 8000 people in our community free reusable period items by the end of 2023 and continue to offer koha period education in our schools and community.
