A mother with her new Lunapads kit
We have been making tremendous progress on our goal of bringing reusable sanitary napkins to adolescent girls in the Dominican Republic!
In April 2011, we distributed Lunapad kits to all the girls and mothers in our program in Cabarete and had an extensive information session on the care and use of these kits. Our girls and mothers were extremely grateful and excited for the chance to try them out.
In June 2011, another group of students from Lakeside School in Seattle - the school who supported the purchase of the original kits - brought Lunapads to Tres Ceibas, rural community an hour outside of Cabarete and distributed them to the young women in the community there, continuing the cycle and strengthening bonds between the different groups of young women in our program.
Our goal is to continue supporting programs that increase educational opportunities for our girls and provide sustainable solutions to ending poverty.
Thank you for all your support and donations, and let us continue to work together for our Mariposas!
School attendance improves by 20% for our girls
