  14. 14. Each year, when we review the evaluations from the conference, we are encouraged to know that people always want to know how the projects/programs/information shared at the conference are driven by faith. How are they unique and different than presentations at other conferences? From work of other organizations? Stigmatization from menstruation causes women and girls to miss school and employment opportunities, while lack of sanitary supplies leads to dangerous coping methods. It’s Our Mission: Period! presents an evangelistic model of how God loves women and chose their anatomy and how their bodies work, and provides sensible solutions for women in disadvantaged areas.
