“Days for Girls”

10 Jun

On Friday, June 9, Krysta gave a presentation twice to our girls. She presented the program “Days for Girls.” Sr. Inga helped with the translation.

Health. Education. Dignity. Ensure she has what she needs to succeed. Why “Days for Girls”? Every girl and woman has inherent worth and dignity. “Days for Girls” celebrates this by providing sustainable feminine hygiene solutions and health education. When girls and women have health, education and opportunity, communities and our world are stronger. 

Using this program, Krysta provided education about their monthly period, sex risks, how you can get pregnant, as well as sharing points about self-esteem, respecting oneself and working together to support one another as teenagers and young women. At the end of the presentation, each girl received her own kit which provided pads that can be reused,  2 pairs of undergarments, and a bar of soap.
