GAME-CHANGER FOR GIRLS
Game-Changer for Girls is all about empowerment of women through development of a women’s manufacturing enterprise which produces the Days for Girls washable feminine hygiene kits for young girls in South Africa. This enterprise, which has achieved the Gold Standard for product quality from Days for Girls, not only provides employment for 11 women from the low-income settlements, it provides mentoring and skill training in sewing, organizing, planning, management, and marketing.
Several women have been trained and certified as Ambassadors of Women’s Health to provide the critical feminine hygiene education.
Since the enterprise started in late 2017, 15,874 girls have received women’s health education and 12,973 kits have been distributed.
The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 significantly curtailed activity on kit production and distributions so for several months the enterprise produced masks. As is the case with everyone, we are hoping for a better year in 2021.
Lack of understanding, fear and lack of access to feminine hygiene supplies is common for young girls in the poverty stricken settlements of South Africa. But you can solve this for many girls and young women through your gift. Donate Now
