Alma Reynolds and Margaret Cunningham from 'Days for Girls will be our Guest Speakers this week.
Without a solution to manage her monthly cycle, one in ten girls in Sub-Saharan Africa, 113 adolescent girls in India and 30% of girls in rural Brazil will miss school this year.
Around the world, girls and women resort to using rags, mattress stuffing, banana leaves, feathers, and even cow dung to manage their menstruation. Days for Girls provides a safe, beautiful, washable, and long-lasting alternative —
along with vital health education.
Days for Girls is changing the status quo, through menstrual care solutions, health education, and income-generation opportunities. In less than ten years, they have reached one million women and girls in over 120 countries on six continents.
Drop out rates in a Ugandan school went from 25% to 4% after one year of access to 'Days for Girls' kits.
School retention rates for girls in Kenya reached 96% after receiving 'Days for Girls' kits, up from a 75% average.
More than 80% of Enterprise Leaders in Africa, Asia and Latin America are earning income from the sale of 'Days for Girls' kits.
Come along and hear Alma and Margaret speak about this fantastic project.
