Friends of Irise

What we’re all about

Friends of Irise is a student group connected to Irise International, a charity centred around marginalised women and girls and the Menstrual Hygiene Movement in East Africa.

Friends of Irise works to break the stigma around periods and raise awareness about the huge number of girls who miss school while menstruating.

We are a group of like-minded students who organise campaigns and fundraisers, having a direct impact on girls in the UK and East Africa.


We hold informal meetings to organise fundraisers and awareness campaigns.


Membership is free of charge.
