GirlStuff.Period Update

It's time to give you an update on the work we are doing In GirlStuff.Period.

In March we participated in the GlobalGiving Girl Fund Campaign March 1-15, and although we had some very good participation, we did not achieve our goal of landing in the top 4, to receive additional funds from the campaign. Nonetheless we are still able to move ahead with some of the goals the ladies of GirlStuff.Period in Bergnek have set for themselves in the 2018 year.

It's not over

The exciting part is that for Mother’s Day we get another chance to achieve our current goals in the GlobalGiving Mother’s Day Campaign, running May 1-13, 2018.

Here's what the ladies of Bergnek would like to achieve, with your support of course, this year. The key goals the GirlStuff.Period team has set for this year are:

  1. To grow the business to a point where it turns the corner on sustainability, and;
  2. To grow revenues and profits enough to be able to distribute 5,000 menstrual pads every school semester to young girls in South Africa.

What will this achieve for the Girls in South Africa that need GirlStuff.Period’s help? It helps to:

  • End bullying at school for girls
  • Educate them on health and family planning
  • Give them access to food daily via the My World, My Garden program
  • Finds them employment within and outside GirlStuff.Period
  • Build successful businesses via the My Business, My Community program
  • Teach them how to give back to their communities 
  • Make underdeveloped communities in South Africa sustainable 

Taking The Next Step

The exciting news is that, as a result of your efforts and support, we have been working hard behind the scenes to develop the website for GirlStuff.Period, and it has now been launched and is official. Join our newsletter here to get more news about what we are doing in each of the My Arms Wide Open projects.
