Conference Service Project 

Period Bags Update: 
Plastic bags are no longer allowed in certain countries, so DaysForGirls
changed from plastics bags to reusable, washable "wet bags" for their
kits.  The wet bags can be purchased on Amazon, 2 for $10 or 4 for $14 to $17.  
Join us for another region hands-on service project, focused on ending “Period Poverty”.

What is Period Poverty?
The inability to access sanitary products and menstruation education due to financial constraints; disproportionately affects students, low-income and homeless women and girls, transgender and nonbinary individuals and Incarcerated people.
We will be making period kits to send to a Soroptimist club in Kenya near Kisumu to donate to a local school.

Period Kits 
Each bag contains 2 shields, 8 pads, and a few purchased items (a bar of soap in a wet bag, 3 pairs of underpants, a washcloth).

Underpants size suggested: girls 10-12, girls 12-14, or women's small. Please put a tag on the bag (small, medium or large) so they know what the bag includes.

Snap size suggestion - 16p metal snaps. You will need to buy a snapping tool.

Goal is for each club to create 2 kits.
