Spring (in Bergnek) update from the field

Spring time in Bergnek
Spring time in Bergnek

Spring is in the air! 

As we move into spring the team in South Africa is getting ready to start a new program to increase awareness and expand the GirlStuffPeriod business.

Starting in October Keith is working with Citizen’s Media (“CM”) to do a series of interviews with the residents of Bergnek as well as the women on the GirlStuffPeriod team. The interviews and the recordings resulting from them will be published on the CM site with the intent of raising funds to support the ongoing projects as well as increase awareness of the business.

We’re excited because we always learn something new when a third party comes in and does the interviewing and asks the questions the community feels are important to answer. We will be bringing these interviews to you as well, in the form of additional reports, as they are made available to us, so look out for them.

#DontTalkTakeAction

There are multiple ways for you to help and support girls in the program and we are counting on you and the people you know to take action.

Share your Excitement

We ask that you forward this project report to 2 friends or begin your own fundraising page for the cause here on GlobalGiving.

We are grateful for your ongoing support and for all you, as a donor, have already done to create positive change in the Bergnek community, and are always grateful for you our supporters, and especially for those of you who give to the GirlStuffPeriod project every month. Thank you for your contributions, your messages and for sharing the work we do with the wonderful people of Bergnek. We appreciate you and the people of Bergnek most certainly do too. 

We won't give up on the communities we serve, and we know you won't either!
