Days for Girls puts freedom and opportunity back into the hands of women and girls. We do this through providing sustainable hygiene solutions, and through creating an environment for narrative change at critical junctures in a woman or girl’s life.
Every Girl. Everywhere. Period.
Their Kit, which lasts 2-3 years replaces 360 disposable pads. They are sewn by volunteers around New Zealand and depend on donations to buy the right fabrics, ribbons and underwear for their packs! If you would like to get involved let us know and we can put you in touch with this fabulous Days for Girls team!
Each DfG Kit contains:
- 2 x Washable waterproof shields
- 8 x liners to insert into the shields
- 2 x Pairs of underwear
- 1 x Wash Cloth
- 1 x bar of soap
- 2 x plastic ziplock bags to use for storage, soaking and to use as a “washing machine” in areas where water is scarce
- 1 x drawstring bag/back pack to store/transport the entire DfG kit
Lets help them by donating either an entire pack to someone in need OR parts of the pack. As the sewers like to ensure that they use the right fabric to adhere to the guidelines set by “Days for Girls” they prefer to source the fabric and ribbons themselves. Let’s help them by donating today! 100% of your donation goes into a pack – all packs are made by volunteers in Christchurch!
