RITES OF PASSAGE for BOYS
‘What is there for the Boys?’ Local to me in Central Victoria (Castlemaine) there is an active group of dedicated men offering a Rites of Passage for boys, twice yearly, to mark their passage from boy to man. You can visit the website to read more about it.
The Rite journey is a unique educational program designed to support the development of self-aware, vital, responsible and resilient adults. The Program, delivered through schools, reinvents the traditional process of a Rite of Passage to assist in transforming the adolescent from dependency to responsibility.

MAKE YOUR OWN CLOTH PADS
Plastic Free Periods, an initiative launched in central Victoria in 2018. We offer educational makers workshops teaching women and girls how to make their own re-usable cloth pads, informing of the health impacts of period products which contain plastic, and assistance for making the transition to Plastic free. Partnering with various organizations, we donate a percentage of what we make in each workshop to women without access to period products, to assist in the mission to make period poverty history!
The Sustainable period project is a one stop shop for free resources to help educate about re-usable and sustainable menstrual hygiene options.
