Empowering young women all over the world
There are girls across the world that are missing five school days a month because they lack proper menstrual care. This affects their ability to receive and even complete their education and elicits embarrassment around their period. Basic hygiene that many of us take for granted can completely change a growing girl’s life by helping her break the cycle of poverty and live with dignity.
When we mobilize girls and women through access to health and education, their communities grow stronger.
Days for Girls is committed to supporting a girl throughout her entire lifecycle, from providing her with a DfG Kit, to teaching her health education, to offering training for her when she grows older, so that she can produce DfG Kits and support hygiene needs in her community. Rise aligns with Days for Girls’ three pillars, here’s how we’re giving back:
