The Women of NMC have a unique opportunity to help create a more dignified, free, and educated world for women through access to lasting feminine hygiene solutions. By partnering with Days for Girls, an organization that is passionate about bringing dignity to the development of young women, NMC Women can help provide girls and women in Africa with feasible access to quality sustainable hygiene and menstruation health education. NMC Women will help accomplish this mission by providing a Days for Girls (DfG) kit for young women and girls in Kenya and Uganda this spring. All DfG kits contain washable menstrual pads and holders, panties, a washcloth, a bar of soap, and instructions for use.
January 29 – April 23 « 9:00am-7:00pm
NMC Women will host a workshop to make and assemble supplies for these kits. If you have a heart for serving women, please consider joining us as we gather to provide materials that will change the lives of the women we hope to serve.
