Association for Community Empowerment Solutions (ACESWorld)
Pads4Learning is a program by ACESWorld that educates girls about reproductive health and provides supplies for menstrual hygiene management. We need your help sewing prototype reusable pads as we prepare to implement an upcoming Pads4Learning project.
We will provide fabric, and you will provide your own sewing machine, thread, etc. We are looking for volunteers with any level of sewing experience, as long as you have the necessary tools. You will be testing prototypes with a testing protocol provided by us. Because we’re mailing the fabric, volunteers must be located in the continental U.S.

The mission of the Association for Community Empowerment Solutions (ACESWorld) is to accelerate an end to global poverty by removing the impediments to quality education to create a world of shared prosperity. Empathize We approach every problem by first listening, searching for understanding, and developing a feeling for what it’s like to walk in a person’s shoes. Educate Education is a powerful instrument for reducing poverty and improving health, gender equality, peace, and stability. Nevertheless, 260 million children are still out of primary and secondary school. Empower for Change Girls with little or no education are far more likely to be married as children, suffer domestic violence, live in poverty, and lack a say over household spending or their own health care than their better-educated peers, which harms them, their children, and communities.
