MHM Education Guide

Education on menstruation made easy, effective and fun

Our MHM Education Guide combines the relatable story of a young girl entering puberty with exciting activities. This allows you to conduct training on good menstrual hygiene management (MHM) that girls will love and enjoy. The Guide is easy to use, free of charge and can be implemented in two compact and effective training sessions. Start educating girls on MHM today so they are prepared to manage their menstruation with confidence!

A unique crossbreed between an NGO and a creative agency

WASH United works to build a world in which all people benefit from safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), including menstrual hygiene. A unique crossbreed between an NGO and a creative agency, WASH United focuses on the challenges in advocacy and education where our combination of WASH sector expertise and creative talent can make the biggest difference.

In terms of advocacy, WASH United focuses on two initiatives: Menstrual Hygiene Day, the global movement to end period stigma, which WASH United initiated and leads; and Make Rights Real, the initiative to promote access to services for all people using human rights, which WASH United co-developed and co-leads. In terms of education, WASH United focuses on the development and dissemination of low-cost, scalable solutions for menstrual hygiene education, which can be accessed free of charge.


WASH United is working with more than 1,000 partner organisations across the different initiatives, including UNICEF, UNFPA, the World Bank, WaterAid, Welthungerhilfe, GIZ and hundreds of local organisations. Most of our local partners are based in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.

Impact to date

Our partnership-based approach has enabled us to reach more than 2 billion people with menstrual hygiene and sanitation campaigns and more than 2.5 million girls and boys with MHM and WASH education. The Making Rights Real approach is used in 12 countries.

It's tangible: Assessing achievements of HRWS based programs

During this talk, we will discuss monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) approaches for assessing progress on the HRWS in WASH programs. We will answer questions such as: how do you measure the impact of implementing the MRR approach? How do you know when there has been a shift in mindset? And how can you know if these changes are due to your program?
