Days for Girls York
 

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. We aim to provide girls 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.
