Join International Neighbors’ Campaign to Keep Girls in School!
In Liberia, the parents of today’s junior high and high school girls lived through two civil wars that disrupted school for a generation– and left the country impoverished. Girls today, are eager to remain in school. Many are already behind due to years lost to school closures from Ebola and Covid. Then, they fall behind their male peers by being absent four or five days each month because no sanitary supplies.
We aim to provide girls with the information and materials they need to stay clean and comfortable in school during their periods.
Since 2018, over 2,000 girls have participated in OCF menstrual health workshops. Each girl received a washable sanitary ‘Pad for Her’ kit allowing her to remain in school during her periods. This is an outstanding accomplishment for a community-based nonprofit of volunteer staff and part time workers. But there are thousands more who need help.
This is Josephine’s passion.
Every Dollar Helps.
This quarter our goal is to raise $16,920 to provide menstrual health workshops and complete sanitary totes filled with supplies to 360 girls in a remote county of Liberia at the beginning of the 2023 school year. But sewing must start now!
