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.
At the end of 2019, 14,590 girls have received women’s health education and 11,874 kits have been distributed or sold. Total kits produced (including present inventory) is 14,497.
One of the project goals is to establish a consignment program where the enterprise works directly with local schools to provide the health education workshop and consign a supply of kits that the school would have available for sale.
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
