Menstruation kits for Africa
It is a sad fact that girls miss school while they are on their period. The ‘Your Smalls Appeal’ provides a hygienic and safe solution to ensure girls feel secure and comfortable. Without a hygienic and safe solution, girls will use dirty rages which lead to infection and in some cases animal ‘dun’, which can lead to death!
We use supply girls with reusable ‘menstruation kits’ which last for 3 years. Each kit is beautifully made by women in The Gambia who have been trafficked. This, in turn, helps sexually exploited women/girls by providing them with a job and income. The kits include a bag with a single bar of soap, a flannel, pair of pants and reusable soft fabric pads and a fabric insert.
