SPINZS (Sanitary Products in New Zealand Schools) is a charity that purchases and distributes sanitary products to schools where it is known that girls skip school every month because their families can’t afford to buy sanitary pads.

We believe that every child has the right to an education that is not compromised by embarrassment or shame. By ensuring all girls have the opportunity to attend school regularly we are helping to break the cycle of disadvantage and inequality.
