Why GirlStuff™ Matters

DonateNowButton-sm

Over the past few months we've had some inquiries as to why a program such as GirlStuff, which manufactures, sells and distributes reusable, washable menstrual products is so important and so we'd like to share what it's all about and give you an update on our activites in the field.

A time for reflection, a time to re-focus

Written by

Creating change one person at a time

DonateNowButton-sm

Vancouver, December 6th, 2013 - With the passing of Nelson Mandela, Madiba, as he is affectionately known in South Africa, it makes this time of year even more special. Although we are saddened at the passing of a person who changed a people, a nation, a continent and in fact, the world, it happened at a wonderful time of year where happiness just seems to flourish and abound. With the passing of Nelson Mandela we choose to celebrate his life with a renewed and stronger commitment to keep working, and work smarter, more intensely, to support people to lift themselves out of poverty, empowered by their own belief in self and the power to manifest their humble and beautiful dreams to become their new realities.

News from the field - GirlStuff.Period - My Trip to Cradock

DonateNowButton-sm

My name is Keith (Keabetswe) and I work along side My Arms Wide Open in South Africa on  a number of community projects under Bergnek Community Projects.  First of all I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who were involved in this project, including Lunapads and their Pads4Girls program, Warren and our partners in Uganda, AFRIPads. It took me 12hrs to get to Cradock, this ended up being one of the best trips I have ever had.
