THE STORY:

Welcome to my Mahila Partnership fund raising site!  We are partnering with Haiti Projects an established group working with the women of Fond des Blanc, Haiti for over 20 years.  Using their women’s sewing cooperative, known as the Artisana, we are designing and producing locally made, fair trade and reusable sanitary pads. Combined with health and hygiene education, this single project promises to address a root cause issue associated health and gender disparities in rural Haiti.  

The price of menstrual pads per month is about $8 U.S.  I'm hoping to raise enough money to help at least 20 women for a full year, so close to $2000. Giving is easy- just click on the donate button to your right.  Donate two daily lattes or pay for a full month of pads and soap for a woman ($10).  (The minimum donation is $10 for CrowdRise.)  

We are a 100% volunteer organization.  All the money we raise goes directly to the women we serve.  I volunteer my time, use my own money for travel and expenses, and we have no overhead!  Everything we do, we do to make a difference for women in the world.  Check out www.mahilapartnership.org for more information on our organization. 

Thank you for taking the time to read my site and for donating!
