People across the Channel Islands have been part of a push to tackle period poverty.
Period poverty refers to a lack of access to sanitary items due to financial constraints.
It is estimated that pads and tampons cost more than £18,000 over a woman's lifetime.
Students at The Ladies' College in Guernsey have been making hygiene packs for girls in Tanzania.
The packs include handmade pads made from cloth which comes from donated fabrics which are '100% reusable, 100% washable in cold water, light to carry, easy to wash and quick to dry'.
In Jersey, the Red Box Project aims to tackle the local problem by providing schools in the island with donated sanitary products.
Many girls are forced to miss school when they have their period because they risk feeling embarrassed and in some cases cannot afford sanitary products.
Guernsey girls and young women can use the 'Hey Girls' scheme which operates on a 'buy one, give one for free' structure to help to support girls and women who cannot afford sanitary products.
