A Days for Girls Kit

We have tasks for everyone at any skill level! You need not know how to sew to be of great service here :)

We do have a monthly meeting, but attendance is not required. The date varies. Please contact me for more info!

Each kit will last 3 YEARS or more and will give an impoverished girl back 60 days of school each year.

Each kit is comprised of: 1 cotton drawstring bag, 2 waterproof shields, 8 flannel liners, 2 pairs of panties, 1 washcloth, 1 hotel size bar of soap, 2 gallon size ziploc bags, and an instruction sheet with menstruation chart.

Our Team has sent several hundred kits out in our 3 years to places such as: Nepal, Africa, Cambodia, Guatemala, and to Greece & Jordan for the Syrian Refugees, and we sponsored 300 kits for a school in Haiti where the kits were made by local women who got paid to make them!
We need all the help we can get acquiring the materials needed to continue to sew & assemble all these kits.
