VALUES

Victoria Period Project

the

Choice. Comfort. Dignity.

 

Because menstrual products are a necessity, not a luxury.

 

About Us

Menstrual products are expensive! For youth living with little income or support, the cost is even more significant. Our mission is simple: increase the accessibility of menstrual products for youth in need living in Victoria, British Columbia. To do this, we provide youth facing barriers with free and reliable menstrual products of their choice, every month. By overcoming these issues of cost, availability, and choice, we hope that these youth will have one less thing to worry about.

Located in Victoria, British Columbia on the unceded and unsurrendered territories of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples. We recognize and seek to address the many ways in which poverty is intrinsically linked to historical and ongoing processes of colonialism. We welcome any suggestions on how to better include Indigenous youth in our program and engage in processes of decolonizing.

Free services we offer!

  • Personalized monthly packages of menstrual supplies for individuals

    • Any combination of their choice of tampons, pads, and liners​

  • Menstrual cups

  • Back-up supply kits of menstrual products for organizations

Support

This project is completely volunteer run and funded by donations. Currently the program is at capacity. We need your help to continue serving the youth in our community and to expand our services to support more folks in need. If this is a cause you support, please consider making a contribution through DonorBox - even the smallest amount can make a huge difference in someone's life. 

If you are unable to make a financial contribution but would like to support the project in another way, please send us an email - we'd love to be in touch!  

 

A huge thank you for supporting the youth in our community! ​
