A big thank you to daysforgirls.org for creating and donating menstruation kits for girls and women. We were very touched when we learned about this project as menstruation is a huge part of women’s lives worldwide. These kits not only help improve sanitation during women’s menstruation cycle, it also creates a sense of empowerment (eg. allowing girls to go to school while menstruating, teaching self-care, pride, etc.). We will have the opportunity to provide teaching before handing these kits out.
Kits last up to 3 years. All kits come in a drawstring bag and include:
- Moisture barrier shields (shields are leak-proof because of a moisture proof liner called PUL)
- 8 absorbent tri-fold pads
- 1 bar of soap
- 2 pairs of panties
- Visual instruction sheet
- Large Ziplock bag to carry soiled pads and launder them
A completely sustainable project, and we are so excited to be involved.
