Your support made it possible for 48 women and 2 men to be trained in Zimbabwe to be Ambassadors of Women's Health with Days for Girls last November.  In just 5 months they have made it possible for more than 3,000 girls and women to have kits of their own!  Now several of the Days for Girls (DFG) International team are returning to gather their stories, get surveys of how lives have changed, take photos, capture video, and importantly supply more resources so they can keep going.

Recently, DFG Zimbabwe has been getting thousands of requests for kits and training to make their own from as far as Cameroon, Malawi, Zambia and South Africa. DFG Zimbabwe is willing. They just need more materials.

An anonymous donor has offered to match all contributions, up to $1,000 total, as support for more girls to get more materials and resources to make their own kits. Best of all, you'll see the results almost immediately because we'll be in Africa starting on the 14th of June. So stories and photos of what your donation makes happen will start pouring in!  You can empower a whole lot of girls right now.
