Next in our series of posts about Charitocracy nominees, we have Days for Girls. It was recently nominated by donor
OBXHubands, who previously nominated winning cause Comfort Cases. So let's welcome Days for Girls to our charity of the month club!
Firstly, for newcomers: the cause with the most votes each month wins the pot. No matter how much or how little you contribute, each donor at Charitocracy gets one vote. This is where charity meets democracy. So share this post and ask your friends to vote! That's how we spread the word and, as a result, grow the monthly pot. Yay!
Why Days for Girls?
Every girl and woman has inherent worth and dignity. Days for Girls celebrates this by providing washable menstrual hygiene solutions, health education, and social enterprises to help them reach the last mile in their own communities. Starting at just $10, you can provide a girl with a Days for Girls Kit that keeps her from missing up to three months of school each year.
When we mobilize girls and women through health and education opportunities, their communities and our world grow stronger.
Every school day matters to her.
Without a solution to manage her monthly cycle:
- 1 in 10 girls in Sub-Saharan Africa...
- 113 million adolescent girls in India...
- 30% of girls in rural Brazil...
will miss school this year.
Days for Girls is changing the status quo, through menstrual care solutions, health education, and income-generation opportunities. In less than 10 years, we’ve reached one million women and girls in 110+ countries.
So visit Days for Girls' page on Charitocracy to vote for, like, or discuss this cause! And finally, check out this video showing how their geographically diverse volunteers and donors have impacted 1 million women and girls around the world so far:
