Wadded up pieces of cloth, goatskin skirts, holes in the ground...these are period-management methods used by girls around the world who lack access to traditional period products. Carol Nakisiozi and Joanita Kajoba decided to do something about it. With the help of the nonprofit United Social Ventures, they created Femminae Uganda. Join us as we explore what menstrual cups and theology might have in common.

Episode 1.6: Six Beaded Bracelets

Every morning, Kika Sansago would walk to her elementary school in the Democratic Republic of Congo. But one day, she never made it.

But first, she would have to face the ugliness of her past.
