Hyppy Cup is a MHM (Menstrual Hygiene Management) project for girls and women in Uganda that provides education about menstruation, while at the same time raising awareness about and offering a sustainable sanitary option.We will sell menstrual cups as a sustainable alternative to conventional sanitary solutions. Menstrual cups are made from medical grade silicone and can be used for up to 10 years, making them a very cost efficient, healthy and environmentally friendly sanitary product. We are planning to use a form of direct marketing such as network marketing or microconsignment for distribution. Our menstrual cups will be sold in clinics, health centers and pharmacies countrywide as well.
Additionally, we will develop an app to both support our business and spread awareness about MHM. Through this Android and iOS app, we make menstrual education more accessible to girls and young women. It will feature a cycle tracker as well as educative content. Making factual information more easily available is vital to counter negative menstruation myths and taboos. Furthermore, it includes a section about conventional and sustainable sanitary products, alongside their advantages and disadvantages.
