What Are Feminine Hygiene Kits?
It was the Summer of 2015 at Angella Johnson’s Ignite event that a group of us got together and helped fundraise for Christine Khamasi to be able to attend Days for Girls University in Uganda. Soon after, she attended the program and graduated, opening the Zariel Days for Girls Enterprise in Kayole, Kenya. Many chapters around the world sew Days for Girls kits, but 100 Humanitarians International focuses on fundraising $10 per kit to allow them to be made by the sewing centers we support in Kenya, keeping the economic impact with the women there.
We have raised the funds for over 3,000 of the Days for Girls reusable feminine hygiene kits, and helped to distribute them along with toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, and underwear to girls at schools and rescue centers in Kenya on our expeditions. Our goal is 1,000 kits per year, but we have exceeded that goal in 2018 already!
