The campaign consists of raising funds for the Free Social Project, which consists of distributing reusable sanitary towels and condoms for the benefit of women's health on the island of Santo Antão.

The menstrual period is still considered a major stigma in some societies. Together with the precarious situation of some women, menstrual hygiene is compromised, making women vulnerable in their daily lives. Recently, the pandemic has further weakened the economic and social conditions of some of these women. The Free Social Project was created to respond to these needs on the island of Santo Antão, Cape Verde. Therefore, it aims to raise reusable sanitary towels and condoms for the benefit of women's health. The Project will ensure the distribution of these products together with the necessary training for the correct cleaning of reusable dressings. Teaching and learning are essential so that women are always free and independent. The initial delivery will be 200 Kits of reusable dressings for young women from Porto Novo. The Sanitary Pads Kit, produced in Praia, Cape Verde, contains 7 reusable pads and instructions for use and hygiene. The pads are made of cotton and are easily hand washed, comfortable and safe. Reusable pads are ecologically designed for repeated use due to the difficulty of recycling and the sanitary process of waste in Cape Verde. In addition, condoms will be delivered to the Institute for Children and Adolescents and for Youth Spaces during sexual education training. Knowledge and learning about sex life will help to reduce the high rate of early pregnancy currently seen.

This project was designed and developed because we verified the reality of the place, Ilha de Santo Antão, Cape Verde. When we have contact with her, we realize that the issues of women's health continue to be taboo, which makes women vulnerable who do not have the means to guarantee hygiene, health and safety regarding their intimate health.

In this sense, female hygiene and care is still seen with some stigma, in different realities and cultures, making women's position vulnerable and even compromising their well-being. At the same time, the financial issue is also an obstacle. The high cost of feminine hygiene goods, taking into account the average financial capacity, makes this issue tend to be relegated to the background.

The high cost of feminine hygiene goods, taking into account the average financial capacity, makes this issue tend to be relegated to the background.
This project will be an asset on the island of Santo Antão, especially for the young women who live there, and may have a strong impact on their lives, because based on what is the primary objective of this project, the menstrual period will no longer be seen as taboo and will allow young women to live these cycles freely and without prejudice.
For this reason, we believe that this project will be important in providing access to intimate health goods for women with economic and social needs so that they can be free and independent. All this acting in an economic and sustainable perspective with reusable dressings.
