Days for Girls - Speaker: Jane Pennington
From: Tuesday July 11, 2017, 6:30 pm
To: Tuesday July 11, 2017, 8:00 pm
The Rotary Club of Glen Eira meets weekly with new and interesting guest speakers. We also discuss our current and upcoming service projects. Visitors are always welcome to attend.
In many developing nations not having sanitary supplies can mean days without school, days without income and days without leaving the house. Girls miss up to two months of school every year.
To address this issue and give girls across the globe education, safety and dignity, Days for Girls International was founded in 2008. Days for Girls provides washable feminine hygiene kits to girls and women who would otherwise go without, enabling them to not miss valuable days from their education or employment.
Jane Pennington talks about how hands-on help makes an incredible difference.
