Girls missing school a week a month - Fempads help

Posted January 23, 2015 from United Kingdom

I spend much of my time making washable sanitary towels - Fempads - to send to my sisters who need them. I CANNOT believe the difference this simple idea is making.

So many girls miss a week of schooling every time they have their period and do not have access to feminine hygiene products.

Thus far I have sent them to Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, India, Democratic Republic of Congo and my biggest challenge of all - my latest box to South Sudan where they do not have a postal service. I at last found a courier who delivers to this war torn area.

Dear Sharon.

You are doing a wonderful job, The resusable sanitary pads excited the girls and they are now more prepared to stay in school without any worry. Your contribution means alot to us and especially in the efforts of providing an education for every woman. Our network/connection is much appreciated and rewarding.
