Disheartened by the vulnerability of women during the national COVID-19 lockdown, as well as the injustices that women and girls face every day, sisters Aurora and Cleopatra Marcopoulos did their research on period poverty in South Africa and decided to launch The CORA Project.
- “We want to empower and support girls and women and not let their periods act as a barrier to achieving their full potential”
Youth Day 2021 we were featured in MentHer magazine’s June issue “Breaking Barriers + Creating Access”
Co-founder, Aurora, chatting to Palesa Tembe on the Afternoon Express about all things period poverty and our mission to end it!
With their love for social change and empowering women, Freya Hats created The CORA Hat - a stylish white linen hat with 100% of its profits going to our projects to end period poverty in South Africa.
