talula in africa
When you buy a Talula Cup, part of the profit goes towards helping develop our education project in Zambia, teaching women and girls about their menstrual health and plastic waste. Introducing the Talula Cup means women can have a safer, hygienic and easier period.
how it works
you buy a Talula Cup
we give part of the profit to the women educating others about Talula in Zambia, Africa
the extra money means more women can be trained to pass on information about menstrual health and plastic waste to women and girls
you have a plastic free period and help women in Africa do the same!
Our founder Ali, discovered the menstrual cup back in 2006 and has been advocating its usefulness ever since. Ali and her small team took on the task of introducing the Talula Cup to women across Zambia. The team travel around the country giving talks on menstrual health and hygiene, while introducing the cup as a healthy, money saving alternative to rags and pads. The benefits of Talula Cup aren’t just personal either, the positive environmental impact it has will help change the plastic waste problem in Africa too.
The team out in Zambia encourages open dialogue amongst the women and the need to communicate with their daughters about menstrual health and hygiene. In many cases the team have discovered how little is passed on due to lack of education, traditions and embarrassment on this taboo subject. At present most rural school girls will skip school for a few days each month due to lack of sanitary protection. Likewise, rural women with no access to reliable menstrual products will stay at home during their period to avoid embarrassment and accidents, losing valuable time and income.
Now we have started to spread the word of Talula in the UK, and although we are still a very small business based in Cornwall, part of the profit of each cup we sell here we give to Talula in Zambia. This means Ali can afford to continue to train the women who share the benefits of Talula, reach the remote villages and farms and expand her work to other Africa countries. Mozambique is next on the list.
Talula Cup needs people like you to spread the word to to the women who need us the most.
Talula Cup believes that every woman and girl has the right to a fuss free period, no matter where you are in the world.
Ali’s latest project is to donate a Talula Cup to every woman in a Correction Facility in Zambia. See the link below for more information.
