Sydney sisters G.D Anderson and Caillie Dunne launched their charity The Cova Project in March this year, with the aim of ending period poverty around the world. Now, The Cova Project is gearing up for its first Australian fundraiser and it’s set to be a bloody good time!
Think Australia’s best ice-cream, chocolate, artisanal fairy floss and cocktails, all the comforts we rely on around that time of the month!
“Having a period related charity is a challenge. It’s not exactly an easy subject to launch into, so we wanted to create the ultimate comfort zone for our donors, before we dove into the details. Think Australia’s best ice-cream, chocolate, artisanal fairy floss and cocktails, all the comforts we rely on around that time of the month! We love our donors, they change lives with their generosity, so we wanted to provide them with an incredible experience.” says G.D.
Not only are the duo focused on indulgence but quality,
“We picked our sponsors carefully. The Cova Project is a trust worthy, quality Australian charity and we wanted sponsors that matched those qualities, which is why we partnered with wonderful companies like, Archie Rose and PANA Organic.”
The Cova Project has helped 3,000 girls across Liberia, Malawi, South Africa and Uganda since its inception a year ago and the sisters say they’re just getting started.
Plus, one cup is just $7 and they last up to 10 years… Quite frankly, it’s a little silicone scholarship for a lot of these girls.
“We provide menstrual cups and menstrual health education to girls in developing communities. Girls without access to sanitary products miss up to 50 days of school each year and are often forced to drop out. We’re into simple solutions and with our work so far, we’ve proven the cup is just that.
