Opportunities for Girls to Thrive
#PressforProgress, #IWD2019, and #InternationalWomensDay
We're starting our #GirlFund2019 campaign today on #GlobalGiving and we are looking for your support in competing to get one of the top 6 spots. Can you make a monthly contribution to our GirlStuffPeriod program? By contributing just $25 a month you will be helping 25 girls get their menstrual supplies during the year. That helps each of the girls for 2 years!
Uneducated girls remain trapped in a downward cycle of denied rights and poverty throughout their lives. Their families are so poor that they can’t afford underwear or hygiene products. So, when the girls start to menstruate and don’t have underwear or sanitary products, they are ridiculed and bullied by the boys. This crushes their self-esteem and they end up dropping out of school permanently.
Girls in underserved and rural communities all deserve what the same things women and girls in developed countries take for granted. When you donate to GirlStuff.Period via My Arms Wide Open, you give an opportunity to a young woman, so she can work her way out of poverty. Her menstrual pads will help her finish her education, grow her business, provide for her family and her community.
You make her opportunity possible.
