Keeping girls in Africa in school

Written by

We want girls, and all children, in Africa to be able to learn, grow, and thrive... not worry about whether or not they'll survive

We are very proud of our program GirlStuff – Pads4Girls (also on GlobalGiving), whereby we provide girls with the washable and reusable feminine hygiene supplies that they cannot afford to buy but desperately need so they can attend school. While we’ve seen that these feminine hygiene kits are very successful at getting girls back to school, unfortunately staying in school is part of a larger, more complex issue than most of us could possibly imagine.

Water, Water Everywhere

Water, Water everywhere... but not a drop to drink

Previuosly, we shared the progress we’ve made with Engineers Without Borders (“EWB’) on our planning efforts for our ‘One Brick at a Time’ program.  The latest news is that our assessment trip with EWB is now slated to take place the last week of October and through the first week of November. The timing is actually very good for us, because it will be the end of the rainy season and before the hot summer weather actually sets in. But, we really need your help. We need to raise 5% of the total cost of the program ourselves, that's a total of $7,500.  So we are asking for your help in getting more people involved in the One Brick at a Time Program, which provides a direct benefit to the children and people of the Bergnek community in rural Limpopo, South Africa.

Looking at the BIG Picture

A Good First Step

By providing reusable, washable feminine hygiene kits to girls who simply cannot afford to buy them is a cause that we are passionate about because every day we are helping to get these girls back into school and keep them there longer. But if we really want to make a significant, sustainable difference in the lives of these girls, we need to look at the big picture and what other things can we do to further support the girls in the communities that we serve.
