Creating a more dignified, free and educated world through access to lasting feminine hygiene solutions.
Days for Girls International serves girls and women of childbearing age in poverty who suffer from lack of access to sanitation. Wherever they are. However we have to get to them. We partner with NGO's to get kits into the hands of those who need them in the most effective manner possible, saving duplication of efforts. We recognize that rather than incurring unnecessary expenses we can focus on solutions and utilize existing networks. We are working to establish best practices through micro-enterprise and community programs with several trusted NGO's to enable women to make their own kits for the communities they live in, providing much needed supply and employment. We apply what we learn to partner with worldwide NGO's to replicate the programs, with the goal of enabling hundreds of thousands of women to turn oppression into opportunity.
