The BHM Foundation - The Project To Fight Period Poverty in the D.R.Congo

More Than Just Fashion: Empowering Women and Girls

At Belange Handmade (BHM), we believe fashion has the power to uplift not just your wardrobe, but also your community. We understand the devastating impact of period poverty, a challenge that deeply affected the lives of women and girls Belange Mutunda witnessed firsthand while growing up in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

According to UNICEF, an estimated 1.2 billion women and young girls globally lack adequate sanitary services due to poverty. This lack of access keeps girls out of school and limits opportunities for women.That's why we launched the BHM Foundation in 2019, officially starting our fight against period poverty in 2021. Through the Foundation, we provide reusable menstrual supplies to women and young girls in impoverished rural areas.
