Goods for Girls

This is a fantastic program and when I get my sewing machine back in working order, this is high on my list of things to sew:

“In many areas of the world, access to adequate menstrual supplies is difficult to come by. Many women and girls rely on rags, newspaper, camel skin or nothing at all for their menstrual needs. A lack of sanitary pads can be a big barrier to a girl’s education….Imagine trying to go to school or work without protection. For many, it brings life to a halt….Providing disposable supplies creates an additional burden on some communities where solid waste disposal consists of burning the garbage. Since many disposable feminine hygiene products contain plastic, incineration potentially creates an environmental and health hazard.”
