Challenge

There are over 1 million documented Syrian refugees in Lebanon, making up 1/4 of the total population. Feminine hygiene is an often over-looked need when providing aid to refugees. Women require sanitary pads every single month. When given disposable products, she will once again need them in 28 days. Many refugees simply cannot afford to purchase pads month after month.

Solution

Days for Girls Lebanon will provide refugees with reusable, dependable, cloth feminine hygiene kits. We will establish a sewing center for volunteers to join our team and expand our production and reach.

Long-Term Impact

Days for Girls kits are designed to last a minimum of three years. This will allow a woman the security of not having to purchase pads or resort to poor, unhealthy solutions. We would like to provide kits to at least 500 women in our first 6 months and increase production and distribution steadily after the first year.
