Establishment of a sewing club to manufacture reusable menstrual pads

Announcement: Support our Scholarship Program

This project funded by Viva in the amount of USD $5000 will support the establishment of a reusable pads enterprise. This will enable the women of the village to sew and sell washable, reusable sanitary kits using the Days for Girls copyrighted patterns and logo.

These kits will be made available for the school aged girls who register for BGW & NUS menstrual hygiene workshops and will also be given to the women who work within the project. DFG kits are truly life-changing for the school aged girls who receive them. “Days for Girls” literally refers to “School Days for Girls”.

Currently, girls who menstruate without access to sanitary supplies are forced to skip school. They subsequently fall behind in their studies and are often forced to drop out of school
