What if not having sanitary supplies meant DAYS without school? Days of isolation? Girls use leaves, mattress stuffing, newspaper, corn husks, rocks, —anything they can find—but still miss up to two months of education and opportunity every year. It turns out this issue is a surprising but instrumental key to social change for women all over the world.
"Days for Girls increases access to menstrual care and education by developing global partnerships, cultivating social enterprises, mobilizing volunteers, and innovating sustainable solutions that shatter stigmas and limitations for women and girls. Together, we're creating a world with dignity, health, and opportunity for all."
A group of women at Faith Church supports the mission of Days for Girls through fundraising and making menstrual hygiene kits that will be distributed to girls and women all over the world.
