Women attend DfG Kit distribution
At Days for Girls we love to celebrate, and today we are celebrating you! Thanks to your support, we are able to continue working toward our mission of bringing menstrual solutions and health edcuation to women and girls in some of the most remote and diffiult areas of the world; you are making our vision of reaching Every Girl. Everywhere. Period. possible!
This past November marked 10 years since the founding of Days for Girls. What started as just one woman testing out washable pad designs has grown into tens of thousands of local leaders mobilizing resources, sewing pads, delivering health education, collecting feedback, and building relationships in more than a hundred twenty countries around the globe. The team in Lebanon has been a shining example of the power of local leadership to create real change in their communities.
As Days for Girls celebrated 10 years, the DfG Lebanon Enterprises joined hands with Days for Girls volunteer teams in Utah to produce and deliver 6,000 DfG Kits to Syrian women and girls living as refugees in Akkar district. This massive effort required global coordination to liaise with partners at the refugee settlements, mobilize women and girls in need of menstrual health solutions, produce more than 6,000 DfG Kits, and ship many of these Kits half way across the world.
Not only did this directly benefit the women and girls who received the DfG Kits and health education, it also empowered the Syrian Enterprise leaders who traveled out to the communities as representatives of DfG. With your support, they had the resources and confidence to step out as leaders and role models for the young women they serve. It has been thrilling to see the progress not only of DfG over the past 10 years, but of these passionate leaders in Lebanon over the past 1 year. Thank you for your support in making it all possible. We can’t wait to share more with you in 2019!
DfG Kits ready to go out!
