Days for Girls (DfG) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2008 that prepares and distributes sustainable menstrual health solutions to girls who would otherwise miss school during their monthly periods. Each kit is in a draw-string bag and includes reusable cloth menstrual pads made up of colorful shields and liners, panties, a washcloth and soap, a carry pouch for washing & storing, and other items. The kit enables girls to carry their clean and used pads discreetly and to take care of their own hygiene needs.
During the distributions, communities also receive health education to break stigmas and cultural taboos associated with menstruation.
If you would like to volunteer with our local Days for Girls group there are many jobs that do not require any experience or sewing skills.
We meet every other Thursday at the church from 9-12.
