Wiley’s Finest and OrganiCup partner to provide menstrual cups to end period poverty for girls in Ghana

From now until 1 October 2021, sustainable and ethical fish brand Wiley’s Finest UK will donate 20% of sales of each bottle of its Beginners DHA and Elementary EPA to School in a Bag’s Ghana initiative, which distributes bags filled with educational resources to disadvantaged children, and now OrganiCup will provide 400 menstrual cups to young women and their mothers through the programme.

A study found that 95% of girls in rural areas of Ghana reported missing school during their periods (Ghana-based NGO Sustainable Development Focus (SUDEF).

Across all of Sub-Saharan Africa, it is estimated that one in 10 girls miss out on school while menstruating, adding up to as much as 20% of a school year (UNESCO).

“No girl or woman needs to be ashamed of their period, nor should they miss out on vital education.”

Soo Cieszynska, UK Brand Manager, OrganiCup

OrganiCup aims to reduce waste as well as end the stigma and shame around periods through education and awareness. The medical-grade silicone cups last for up to ten years and remove the need for sanitary pads and tampons, which often girls cannot afford.  

School in a Bag’s Ghana initiative will distribute the cups. The charity creates SchoolBags from discarded water sachets; bags of water that Ghanaians use by ripping the corner off of the sachets with their teeth and squirting the water into their mouths. Often the sachets are then discarded in the streets, causing litter and blocking the storm drains which, in turn, causes flooding, the damage of farmland crops and disease through stagnant water.


School in a Bag works with Ghanaian company Trashy Bags who employ locals to collect and wash the sachets. They are then sewn into SchoolBags and filled with educational resources. 87 water sachets are used to make each bag. As a result, streets and beaches are cleaned, jobs are created, littering is reduced through awareness and many Ghanaian children receive vital educational resources. Without the charity, thousands of children would have no paper or pens to learn with – relying simply on memory.

Each SchoolBag costs just £20 and contains life-changing resources such as pencils, pens, colouring pencils, a math set, ruler, pencil case, exercise books, face mask and hygiene kit, water bottle, lunch box and Spork (a combined spoon and fork) and some of the charity’s projects include a LifeStraw; a personal and reusable drinking device which removes bacteria, virus and microplastics, ensuring children can drink safe, clean water.                            OrganiCup                                    School in a Bag

Client Coverage: Revolve24 in the Daily Express

A blind veteran who battled a brain tumour, a cracked skull and two bouts of meningitis is set to tackle Revolve24, the 24-hour cycling challenge on the world-class Brands Hatch motor circuit, to raise funds and awareness for the military charity that supported him in his darkest days.

Darren Blanks, 31, from Egremont, Cumbria, an Iraq war veteran, was only 23 years old when he noticed he was having trouble reading a magazine. Darren went into his local Specsavers, expecting to leave with his first pair of glasses and instead had his life turned around when he was diagnosed with both a brain tumour that made him partially deaf and a rare genetic disease that would rob him of his vision.
