Mustard Seed Organization is a USA-based non-profit 501c3 organization. Our response to menstrual hygiene challenges in Africa began with the distribution of twenty (20) menstrual hygiene packs to girls in a High School in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. From that very humble beginning, the progress recorded thus far has been impactful. We are counting thousands of girls helped, with several more thousands of menstrual pads distributed. Now, our program is WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) focused and active in Uganda and Nigeria at seven locations for 8 months of the year (except school holidays). Our next goal is to expand operations into Rwanda.

Together, we can end “PERIOD” poverty crisis
We have one ambitious goal: ending PERIOD poverty in Africa. While the debilitating effect of this huge crisis remains, we are optimistic as we continue to carry out the Menstrual Hygiene Management programs every month that progress is being made.
Join hands with us to see significant progress made in our own lifetime.
Leading the team
Facing a problem as the debilitating menstrual hygiene crisis requires an incredible team. We are grateful to have a committed team guiding the organization.
