The FLOW Project
Melanated PEARL Corp founder, Crystal Perry served as the lead advisor to empower Corrine H. to obtain the Girls Scout Gold Award (November 2020-September 2021).
Corinne H. is a Senior at Elite Scholars Academy in Clayton County.
Corrine says she launched this project “because I feel like all women should have access to basic feminine hygiene products. No matter your situation. It's a shame that women have to choose between putting food on the table or a box of pads.”

According to USICH
“As of January 2019 Georgia has an estimated 10,443 experiencing homelessness on any given day. According to global citizen “Poor menstrual hygiene can cause physical health risks and has been linked to reproductive and urinary tract infections, according to UNICEF.”
Having bad menstrual hygiene can also affect pregnancy.
Her goal is to make sure women don't have to make that decision ever, especially over something that they cannot control.
