Days for Girls International

According to UNICEF a significant percentage of schoolgirls in Africa miss classes or drop out completely due to having their period.


DAYS for GIRLS INTERNATIONAL

IS A VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION THAT HAS BEEN STRIVING SINCE 2008 TO MEET THIS CHALLENGE

BY CREATING WASHABLE FABRIC SANITARY PRODUCTS NOT ONLY FOR GIRLS IN AFRICA,

BUT NOW FOR WOMEN AND GIRLS IN OTHER 3RD WORLD COUNTRIES AND IN REFUGEE CAMPS


DAYS FOR GIRLS now also has a program that helps create business enterprises where women are being taught to create these supplies for their communities and provide a modest income for themselves.

Days for Girls Seneca Team


THE DAYS FOR GIRLS SENECA TEAM, formed in March 2015 at Seneca Presbyterian Church, is among the almost 1000 teams and chapters around the world (580 in the U.S., 67 in Canada, 107 in Australia, and 29 scattered across Europe and Asia) that are sewing moisture-proof shields and brightly colored flannel liners for distribution in areas where feminine hygiene products are unavailable or unaffordable and where disposal is not convenient. We also sew the drawstring bags that are used to package the kits which include 2 shields, 8 liners, 2 panties, soap, washcloth and zip-loc bag.


The Seneca Team meets 9:30-1:30 on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. FOR MORE INFORMATION contact Jan Palmer (247-4983) or Beverly Crabtree (247-0413)  .
