Special Guests at Days for Girls

Kathy Carter gave a presentation about Days for Girls feminine hygiene kits in January at the Good Neighbor Center, to a group of 13 Arabic women after their English language class. These women were so excited to hear about the Days for Girls organization and our Lincoln Chapter. Our Days for Girls chapter sews beautiful, reusable, feminine hygiene items, and assemble kits for women and girls around the world who don’t have access to these items.

One woman from Morocco said that similarly, these were what they used in her country. Two other women shared that they knew firsthand of the value of these kits, as they had been in refugee camps and had nothing to use when they had their menstrual cycle. Days for Girls just sent 46,000 kits to refugee camps in the Middle East this past fall.

Some of the Arabic women from the English language class joined our sewing group in February to make kits with us as well as to practice their English!
