Days for Girls
Chair: Sabashnee Govender 914/850-0195
Work sessions: 3th Saturday of each month, 1:30- 4:30 pm
In June 2017, we began a project to address the lack of feminine hygiene products for girls who live in developing countries and refugee camps. Working with the “Days for Girls” organization, we make long-lasting sustainable feminine hygiene kits. These kits will cut school absences (5-7 days/month) and in this way, reduce drop-outs and increase completion rates. Monthly work sessions take place at Quaker Church (Friends Meeting), 249 Hooker Ave, Poughkeepsie.
In February 2018, 25 kits were completed for the Vassar Haiti Project.
