Initiated as a pilot project in October of 2019; Cupvert aims to make menstrual health information widely available to young people all across the Maldives and promote reusable eco friendly alternatives to menstrual management in the Maldives. With the success of the pilot program the project now has been expanded so that it can reach as many people as possible. With the Covid-19 pandemic access to menstrual products became a major issue as the Maldives is heavily dependent on imports. As part of the project 1000 reusable menstrual cups and reusable pads are being provided to participants along with information sessions on Menstrual Health and Hygiene. The project is funded by UNFPA Maldives, executed by Zero Waste Maldives in partnership with Society for Health Education (SHE).
