At Days for Girls, we are leading the charge in our commitment to provide women and girls the basic tools and knowledge to handle their menstruation with dignity. This is largely due to your support, our GlobalGiving donors. Thank you for your generosity and your continued commitment to some of the world’s most vulnerable women and girls.
We are pleased to share with you the latest achievements of our Lebanon Country Coordinator Khayrieh Al Assad and the DfG Lebanon Team:
Chaza Akik DrPH of the American University of Beirut interviewed Khayrieh as part of a UNFPA commissioned study on menstrual hygiene in Lebanon. The findings of the study were recently released in this study: "Assessment of the potential acceptability and utility of using reusable sanitary pads, and perceptions of awareness-raising on menstrual hygiene among vulnerable Lebanese and Syrian refugee women and girls" .
The DfG Lebanon Social Enterprises sold 100 Menstrual Kits to Concern Worldwide and 800 Menstrual Kits to Jeytna.
DfG Lebanon is in the process of registering as a local Lebanese NGO. This will open up our scope and opportunity to reach more women, girls, and communities in the region.
DfG Lebanon continues partnering with Anera and Americares in Kit distributions. To date, these organizations have donated 9,000 Kits as part of our Lebanon Emergency Response Project.
With your support and the hard work of our incredible Lebanon Team, we are ending period poverty for so many in Lebanon and the region! It is our goal to assure every girl that she matters, regardless of her life circumstances. Thank you for the important role you play in helping us make this goal a reality.
