From A Partnership in Caring Volunteer Lynn MacDonald in Rwanda:
What if not having sanitary supplies meant DAYS without school? Days of isolation? Girls use leaves, mattress stuffing, newspaper, corn husks, cardboard…but still miss up to 2 months of education and opportunity every year.
It turns out this issue is a surprising but instrumental key to social change for women all over the world. I partnered with ‘Days for Girls’ to bring hygiene kits to Rwanda this trip, and am distributing them as I go, finding partners like the BenibikIra Sisters to help distribute them.
