During COVID-19 while the high schools are closed, we have been teaching in rural communities outside Siem Reap. So far we have taught and distributed over 300 kits.
Through our Project G Village Teaching distributions and education sessions, we are educating and empowering girls and women in the countryside about menstrual health education and provide them with safe, beautiful, washable, long lasting feminine hygiene kits that they can count on month after month.
For us, it is close to our heart to help girls and women in the countryside because we understand their struggles. They have less access to health education and hygiene supplies which makes it difficult for them to manage their periods each month. We start by teaching about the reproductive system, menstruation and then show the girls and women how to use our Project G Days for Girls Kits. By providing them with a free, sustainable hygiene kit and education, they can feel confident and empowered to use their Kit so they can continue their lives with comfort and dignity.
To take advantage of the time COVID-19 has given us, our team ran a few short discussions with our educators to clarify some of the questions they’ve been asked after some education workshops. The discussion was not only to clarify some questions but for our educators to gain a deeper understanding on the lessons because each of them plays a major role in empowering and inspiring many students in the rural areas we teach in. We are excited to see a stronger team who continues to share their hope and love to others.
