Tomorrow is More Beautiful

Participant in the Leadership Launchpad

“Our training was so useful in teaching me how to begin our Enterprise and how to deliver health education for women and girls!” A quote from Firial who is one of 20 women who attended a DfG Leadership Launchpad training in Lebanon this past April thanks to your support.

She is now been busy making and selling DfG Kits and educating other Syrian women and girls in her community on women’s health

Throughout the training, the women – 17 of whom are Syrian Refugees – learned to sew DfG Kits, how to teach the Ambassador of Women’s Health (AWH) training, and how to manage their small business as Enterprise Leaders. The women also learned to conduct basic surveys that will help Days for Girls better understand the impact of menstrual health solutions and women’s health education in these communities.

Since the completion of the training, the women have taught AWH and distributed DfG Kits to more than 850 girls who are living as refugees in Lebanon. And they have just begun! With more distributions scheduled for the coming months, they are eager to continue their work of empowerment.

Firial’s Enterprise name, Tomorrow is More Beautiful, perfectly describes not only her vision for her Enterprise, but her pathway back home. We hope to grow our Enterprise… and we ultimately hope to take this project to Syria when we go back.”
