Sewing hubs for girls in cameroon

Doreen Bieri
Posted June 18, 2020 from Cameroon

Together with #comagendcameroon we have just started the first community sewing hubs for girls in hard to reach communities for them to be able to produce clean and affordable Pads to manage their menstruation with dignity. It has not been easy sewing these pads with their simple hands and just with the nidles and thread. We are soliciting for sewing machines and material to enable these girls produce more decent pads for themselves and for their immediate communities. #menstruationmatters #LeaveNoGirlBehind #comagend #ThanksHealthHeroes #ShareWithPride #WorldPulse #UNICEF, #benevolatvaud #benevoljobsch Thanks you Comagend Cameroon for your entrusted partnership. indeed together we will empower many more communities.

You're very welcome:-) What are you calling a "hub?" Is a fixed workshop, or place?

Have you thought about doing a fundraiser and/or social media campaign around it? Networking?

Good luck. You, too!

Hello, Doreen,

Wow, hand-stitched pads! Great idea, dear. To be honest, washable pads are environmentally-friendly. I hope you can have funding so you can sew pads easily. It is efficient, too. :)

Thanks for sharing, dear! Please stay safe.
