The Story

You can empower a girl to stay in school! £5 will pay for the materials and labour to make 4 reusable pads, a wet bag and a new pair of knickers! This gift will enable a girl to be safe and succeed during her period for the next 3 years! Many girls drop out of school when they start to menstruate. The cost of pads is too high and improvised alternatives (such as leaves or even ash) are unreliable and unsanitary. Many girls in this area do not even own knickers. Girls who have dropped out of school are vulnerable to early marriage/pregnancy and are without means to support themselves leading to child malnutrition. Periods don’t stop for pandemics! Although the schools are closed these girls are still in need and with your help we can reach them with this empowering gift! Washable pads are good for the world and good for the girl!
