We are continuing to follow up with the girls that received LunaPads kits in 2011 and are receiving quite a positive response. Starting in February a full time volunteer will join us to help us better track the progress on this initiative and get ready for the next group of young women to receive their kits. We hope to expand this initiative in 2012 and provide more kits so that more girls can benefit from this program. Our goal is to ensure that our girls begin their journey to womanhood with LunaPads and this becomes a cultural norm. The Mariposa girls have bi-weekly health classes and LunaPads education has been fully integrated into the curriculum. Happy, healthy, eco-friendly, money-saving alternative to help keep girls in school.
We want to thank you for your continued support and will continue to update you on our progress!
