Help the Bergnek Community Change their Future
If you could...
If you could change the world today, would you? If you could change the life of a young girl today, would you? In developing countries around the world, the opportunities for girls are oftentimes limited, compared to their male counterparts.
GirlStuff Cooperative is working to do just that
A new update this month is that the The GirlStuff Team was recently able to incorporate their community business as a cooperative. This sets them up to be able to expand the business into other communities.
Each and every day, the team at GirlStuff are working to help girls stay in school every school day of each month, by making and selling reusable, washable menstrual kits, so that the girls in the community can avail themselves of the opportunities that arise from staying in school and achieving good grades.
Why do they need to make Menstrual Kits for girls?
When we look at our own circumstance in a developed country we often don’t understand how a menstrual kit could make such a huge difference in the life of a girl. When you consider that many of the families in the My Arms Wide Open community of families do not have enough money for three meals a day, then you can start to understand why they can't afford menstrual supplies.
Give a Girl New Opportunities to Thrive
How about making a new donation today? Making a donation of $25 right now, could change the life of a girl for the rest of her life. Think about that? What an amazing gift that would be to a girl, at this time of the year as we enter the holiday season.
The women of the GirlStuff Cooperative in Bergnek, are determined to expand into other communities in 2016 and they need yours and my help to do it. Money that we raise this holiday season will go towards raw materials and additional equipment to be able to set up locations in other communities, to employ additional women.
The right sewing machines cost around $1,000 each for a good used machine. In addition to that the GirlStuff team also needs to purchase surgers and raw materials.
Take advantage of allowable deductions and make your donation a tax deduction for 2015 and DONATE NOW!
Whatever you decide, please do it today! The girls, women and children we serve extend a warm smile and heartfelt ‘thank you’ for your support. We are all grateful for your support.
With our deepest Gratitude,
The My Arms Wide Open Family of Communities
You can help us thrive!
