DFG girls have given dignity and self-value so they can become equal participants and agents in social change. Their vision, to have every woman and girl in the world with access to quality sustainable hygiene products and health education. Can you imagine missing school for a week every month and sitting on your bed on leaves or bark or even worse banished to a dirty mud hut for a week?
This breaks my heart, so our commitment from 2017 to donate $50.00 per month this will help to buy fabric etc. for approximately 5 kits per month. That’s 5 girls whose live will be changed!
12 x 5 = 60 Girls!!! OR it would buy at least 65 face washes (for 65 +kits) OR briefs for approx. 12 kits (2 pr. Per kit)
What’s in the kit?
Each washable kit contains 2 shields, 8 liners a pair of underwear, a washcloth, 2 zip lock bags all contained in a drawstring bag to maintain privacy. Each kit gives a girl 8 months of living back in just 3 years.

“Where women are given the rights over their own bodies; where they have political independence; where they have medical facilities to enable them to control the number of children they bear; where they are literate; where they have the vote; When those things happen, the birth rate falls.

Exactly why we are passionate about supporting positive global change!
This are just a few things we support, there is a lot on a local level at schools and other charitable donations, but these are our major commitments:
