Our June 14 First Sunday collection recipient is DAYS FOR GIRLS. Days for Girls serves young women in many areas throughout the world, providing reusable feminine products where they have not been available. Although it may seem that this should not be a problem, or one easily solved, that is not the case. The lack of feminine products prevents girls from going to school, as they are unable to leave their homes. In fact, it is not uncommon for them to have to sit on pieces of cardboard throughout their cycle due to a lack of menstrual pads. These girls are considered dirty or unclean. The founder of Days for Girls has spent many years developing Days for Girls Kits to allow young women freedom to attend school with the added result of breaking the cycle of poverty. Today Days for Girls has reached more than 1.5 million individuals in 140+ countries with DfG Kits and menstrual health education. Learn more here. Checks can be written either to “Days for Girls” or “DMIEC” with “First Sunday” in the memo line.
