Happy Thanksgiving!

"The thankful heart opens our eyes to a multitude of blessings that continually surrounds us."

There are so many things we are thankful for! In September we have packed 310 Days for Girls supreme kits and distributed 461 kits from the 13 distributions and providing menstrual health education that our amazing Days for Girls Ambassadors conducted in the Dominican Republic.

Also in September our Days for Girls DR team had the opportunity to give the first talk at the women's jail and are already organizing the next schedule of talks and deliveries of kits that will be given to all women in women's jail.

We are also thankful to have celebrated 20 Years of ProInfancia. Along with this celebration was the signing of a collaboration agreement with the National Governor of the Rotary Clubs, an institution that works on Social Development issues. This signing was covered by national press that prompted other organizations to approach us to find way to help such as NGO World Vision.

We are thankful for all your support on our goal in shattering the stigma of me********on by providing menstrual health education and menstrual supplies to the women and girls in the Dominican Republic.

Days for Girls

Lack of education about me********on is one of the many obstacles to achieving adequate menstrual hygiene. Inadequate menstrual hygiene is a major problem for girls and women in poor countries, which adversely affects the health and development of adolescent girls.

Challenges to improving hygiene management includes limited economic resources to purchase supplies, inadequate water and sanitation facilities.

Our goal to provide menstrual health education and reusable feminine hygiene products in Rural and Batey villages in the Dominican Republic. Last July our amazing team in the Dominican Republic has manufactured 825 DfG kits and has done 14 distributions and at the same time providing menstrual health education to girls aged 10-18.

We are determined to reach every girl, everywhere, period.🌼🌼🌼

Every child has the right to a safe, quality education & access to lifelong learning. But, due to a lot of factors, many girls are forced to leave school while others never have the opportunity to go in the first place.

Every girls needs certain basics, and every girl has basic rights. Imagine not having clean water, access to menstrual supplies, health care.

Days for Girls Grande Prairie focuses on improving these situations in the Dominican Republic. Women and girls needs are our main priority.

Me********on is a phenomenon unique to females. The onset of me********on is one of the most important changes occurring among the girls during the adolescent years.

Days for Girls Grande Prairie is working hand in hand with Days for Girls Dominican Republic in providing menstrual health education and reusable feminine hygiene products .

One of our goal is to reach 30, 000 girls aged 10-18 by 2024.

Me********on and menstrual practices are still clouded by taboos and socio-cultural restrictions resulting in adolescent girls remaining ignorant of the scientific facts and hygienic health practices, which sometimes result into adverse health outcomes.

Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to me********on. Access to timely, accurate health information is critical to shattering the stigma around me********on and building a more equitable world. That’s why our DfG washable pads are always paired with comprehensive menstrual health education – for menstruators, families and entire communities.

A single Days for Girls kit helps a girl stay in school for 3 years.

All over the world girls and women suffer isolation, indignity, shame, risk infection, lost opportunity and are even put at risk of exploitation due to lack access of affordable, dependable feminine hygiene.

A DfG Hygiene Kit changes that.

Happy New Year! 2021 is here – and it’s time to celebrate 🥳

You did it! With your help, Days for Girls' year-end goal was a huge success. It’s official…we have now reached not 2 million, but 2.1 million women and girls served! Thanks to you.

That’s equivalent to…
🧡️ Every single person living in Perth, Tijuana or Phnom Penh
🧡 The entire country of Lesotho
🧡Four times the population of Greenland

Our hearts are filled with gratitude for everyone who made this possible. In just three short months, our enterprising global leaders and volunteers were able to uplift 200,000 more girls around the world! That’s pretty incredible.

Thank you for helping every girl, everywhere step into the New Year with renewed confidence, dignity and the knowledge that #ShesGotThis – and together, we’ve got her. Period.

With love and appreciation,

The Days for Girls Team

This is our Dominican team reaching out to help their neighbors 🧡

Conscientes de la gran cantidad de comunidades formadas por inmigrantes haitianos y solo entienden el dialecto creole. En daysforgirlsrd hemos capacitando algunas embajadoras para que puedan llegar a estas comunidades e impactar mediante nuestras charlas sobre salud e higiene menstrual, el uso adecuado de nuestras toallas sanitarias reusables. Además de los peligros de embarazo en la adolescencia.

Es nuestro compromiso poder llegar a Cada mujer, En todo lugar, Con su período.

Thanks to great feedback from 🇪🇹 as a result of an October 2019 distribution in partnership with the Swan City Rotary club, more kits are heading to a student residence in Negele, Ethiopia later this month.

These kits tip us over our goal to send 3,000 kits into the 🌎 by years end 🎉 AND will help DfG international reach their goal of 2 million kits by year end.

So much to be thankful for. To our Chapter volunteers who continue to sew 🧵, iron and serve at home in this season, we thank you, miss you and can’t wait to “serge” forward with you again 🧡!

Excited to share the report we received from Jill our Canadian Advocacy Coordinator. Spoiler alert! DfG has made the short list of organizations deemed most effective charities working in the Menstrual Health field! Please read her message below for details

"I am reaching out to share with you an exciting new report that came out last month for the Menstrual Health field entitled, A Bloody Problem: Period Poverty, Why We Need to End It and How To Do It . This is a first-ever report on effective funding recommendations to address period poverty.

This report is launched by Dominika Kulczyk in partnership with the Founders Pledge to bring more attention to period poverty. They are committed to finding and funding solutions to global challenges and the report is a call to action for effective ways funding can be used to address period poverty.

In full disclosure, as part of the report, they vetted 88 organizations working in the MH field to see who were the most effective charities working in this MH field and much to our delight we are listed as one of the eight that made their short list.

It is an excellent report that we hope will help increase awareness and funding for the MH field. Please feel free to share it widely.

Many thanks,

Diana T Nelson
Global Advocacy Director
Days for Girls International"
