Introducing myself and my journal: Get in the Flow

About Me:
Our mantra is 'Every girl. Everywhere. Period.' We mean that. Days for Girls works to break the cycle of poverty by providing sustainable feminine hygiene and health education to girls and women throughout the world. When girls and women have solutions they can count on for their monthly cycles, they gain back days of school, work, and play they have been missing. Menstrual hygiene solutions bring back days of freedom and days of dignity. A girl who receives a beautiful, handcrafted Days for Girls kit learns that her body is precious and unique, not cursed, and that she is worthy of care and protection.

My Passions:
Women and girls, community involvement, teamwork, sewing, good causes, empowerment

My Challenges:
Support for organizational staff and overhead

Welcome "Days for Girls!!"

Dear Days for Girls,

Wow! What a WONDERFUL program you have and how needed and inspirational it is to women and girls everywhere!l Thank you for joining World Pulse and welcome! I am so, so glad you have joined and can share the amazing work that you do with this community of women and girls from more than 190 countries around the world. I have been reading the book "Half the Sky" recently and read about the tragic fact that thousands of girls are missing out on their daily activities due to lack of access to feminine hygiene. Thank you for your incredibly important work in helping to solve this problem!
