Our Approach:

Where Dignity Grows, Women and Girls Thrive

Through a sophisticated national network of professionals, volunteers, and  supporters, Dignity Grows ensures hygiene support for tens of thousands of women and girls each year.

  • Large-scale national research, in partnership with top academic institutions
  • Data-driven social policy change, fostered by private/public collaborations
  • Groundbreaking national assemblies of powerhouse philanthropic, industry and government leaders, convening for actionable change.
