What if not having feminine hygiene products meant . . .
* Days without school
* Days without income
* Days without leaving the house?
Millions of women and girls around the world don’t have necessary feminine products, which forces them to miss school and work while they have their periods.
Without education and skills to contribute to the community, girls end up becoming mothers who wonder how they are going to feed their children, often by the age of 16 or 17. The poverty cycle can only be broken when girls stay in school.
With Days for Girls, we are MAKING reusable cloth menstrual kits for girls around the globe.
Why cloth? Because they’re healthier and many poor communities do not have sanitation infrastructures that can process the trash created with disposable products.
We are collecting fabric donations through next Friday, March 6. Bring your 100% Cotton Flannel to the Inner Court. Please make sure it’s dark, colorful fabric with floral or geometric prints (no animals, characters, camo, glam patterns please).
