Love is knowing that you matter. Throughout the world, millions of women and girls go without access to hygiene solutions each month. But more importantly, they go without dignity. Without education. Without opportunity. For a week each month, life pauses. These girls and women are left to their own devices, not asking for what they need, because they've been told it's shameful. To love these girls and women is to tell them that there is nothing shameful about menstruation. It’s to tell them that they are deserving of care and dignity, and that their bodies are their own. Days for Girls seeks to provide that message to each and every girl and woman we reach. Since every lovingly handmade DfG Kit lasts up to three years, that message is one that will not fade.
Funds from this campaign will go to support DfG centers that connect sewing enterprises with medical facilities providing cervical cancer screening. This funding will thus meet important hygiene and health needs in countries with some of the highest rates of cervical cancer in the world.
