Days For Girls

What is Days For Girls?

Every girl in the world deserved an education, safety, and dignity. Days for Girls is an international mission helping girls get access to quality sustainable feminine hygiene and awareness. We increase access to menstrual care and education by developing global partnerships, cultivating social enterprises, mobilizing volunteers, and innovating sustainable solutions that shatter stigmas and limitations for women and girls.

FUMC is a partner of Days for Girls as a mission of our church. We cut and sew fabric to make the Days For Girls kits that will be sent to countries all over the world. Together, we’re creating a world with dignity, health, and opportunity for all.

The Days for Girls Kit

The Days for Girls Kits are a reusable menstrual kit made to last for at least three years. These Kits don’t look like traditional pads...and there’s a reason for that. The bright colors camouflage staining. The absorbent liners unfold to look like a washcloth, which allows women to wash and dry them outside in the sun without causing embarrassment. All of these design choices add up to a lasting, easy-to-care-for solution.

How You Can Help

We are looking for people who can sew and have either a sewing machine and/or serger. If you can’t sew, that’s ok! We need people who can cut out fabric as well. We are also in need of monetary donations to purchase the materials needed to make these kits. If you are interested in helping or have questions, please contact Vicki Shimer.
