The Story

Empower a girl to stay in school! £6 will pay for the materials and labour to make a pad pack. 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. So far we’ve helped over 3000 girls by giving a pack of 4 pads, knickers and a wet bag! We'd like to reach another 2000 girls this year, but we’ll need your help!
