We are excited to announce that our first shipment of 200 kits has arrived in the Dominican Republic. As soon as the truck from Santo Domingo arrives on the North Coast we'll be distributing the products to all the girls in our program and their immediate family members.
We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of the team who made this happen - Lakeside School, LunaPads and the Encargo group shipping company.
Our goal is to provide reusable sanitary products to all the adolescent girls living in our community. We still need to raise the funds for another 500 kits and we won't stop there.
Thank you for your contributions and support and please spread the word!
Eight boys and four girls from Lakeside School in Seattle came to the Dominican Republic in July 2010. These students spent a month in the remote village of Tres Ceibas above Rio San Juan on the North Coast. For 30 days they lived with the community and created a special summer camp for 30 local children and worked on three homes.
