The Red Box project hands out sanitary equipment to schools.
A project in East Yorkshire set-up to tackle period poverty, says it's making a massive difference.
Red Box issues boxes with sanitary products to schools across the region, in places such as Hornsea, Hull and Beverley.
A report by children's charity Plan International UK in 2017, found one in ten young women aged between 14 and 21, cannot afford sanitary products.
Pippa Hutchinson-Chan is the Beverley Coordinator of Red Box, she says she was shocked, that in a first world country this was an issue.
She adds that it's expensive, because it's an issue that needs addressing every month.
