GhanaGirls Program – Feminine Hygiene Donations

Wasn’t going to post anything tonight, but stumbled upon something before I go ZzzZZ…

Ceciyaa Foundation Introduces “GhanaGirls”, Feminine Hygiene and Menstruation Education for Ghana Teens (Read more on the site)

To combat this, Ceciyaa Foundation is introducing the GhanaGirls program. GhanaGirls will provide free feminine hygiene supplies and menstruation education to girls in rural areas. Here’s how you can help! We want you to donate a small bag for storing feminine hygiene supplies so that these young ladies will have a discreet way to store needed supplies while at school during that time of the month. If you sew, it would be great if you’d consider designing and making a bag or two from your left over material. If not, purchase a bag and donate it to us. We would also appreciate your donation of feminine hygiene supplies (pads, not tampons, feminine cleansing products, etc.). We have begun purchasing some supplies, but many more are needed.

Finally, if you can recommend a good resource for us to gather our educational materials, we would appreciate your suggestions. If you are interested in working with Ceciyaa Foundation’s GhanaGirls program send an email to ceciyaafoundation@gmail.com for information on how you can get involved.

Too bad I don’t live in the U.S, or I’d definitely know where my leftover supplies are going :) If you’re in the position to help these people, by all means!
