National Diaper Bank Network 2020 Annual Report


The Kwek Society

The Kwek Society, an Alliance for Period Supplies allied program, works to ensure that Native American girls attending rural schools receive free access to period products and suitable support to aid in their health and academic success within their schools.

Kwe’k means “women” in the Potawatomi language, so the organization is The Women’s Society.

The Kwek Society distributes period products — including those donated by U by Kotex®, the founding sponsor of the Alliance for Period Supplies — throughout the Navajo Nation.

Graphic: One in four women have struggled to purchase period products in the past year due to lack of income.
