Another area of the outreach includes educating girls about their menstrual cycles and proper body care. Through this education, girls are provided feminine hygiene kits that contain supplies to use during their monthly cycle.
This simple kit will not only improve her health, but will also provide her the dignity to remain in school 45 more days per year where she can continue to learn. A quality education is one of the few hopes these girls have to rise above extreme poverty. In our world of modern conveniences it is hard to believe a few scraps of cloth could make a difference to someone else, yet the reality is these pads are life changing to the girls who receive them.
Thank you to Sandra who maintains a portion of her Sew in Peace blog site to this particular ministry.
