Days for Girls

The craft group I was involved in decided to participate in the creation of cloth pad kits for girls living in 3rd world countries, such as Africa. Many girls miss school or eventually give up on school because they have no way to stay clean during their menstrual cycle. Education is important and this was a great way I could help a few girls stay in school.

 
The kits included 2 waterproof shields, 10 liners, and a drawstring bag which we made and several other items such as a wash cloth and soap. We ended up with 25 full kits to send along with a missionary who will be visiting Africa in a few months.




I'm so glad to have participated in the craft group and our final project before we all went our separate ways.


If you are interested in learning more about Days for Girls and would like to donate some kits or even parts of the kits then go HERE.
