India Feminine Hygiene Project

To sew and provide $15 reusable sanitary kits to keep girls from dropping out of school.

23% of girls in India drop out of school because they don’t have sanitary pads. 

  • $15 will provide them with a kit of reusable pads and liners that will last for 3 years.
  • $500 will launch an impoverished woman into business with a sewing machine and materials, to make and sell feminine hygiene kits and other items; lifting her and her family out of abject poverty.

Destitute to Destiny’s Feminine Hygiene Project will provide 40 industrial sewing machines, 10 industrial sergers, sewing supplies, fabric for 500 kits, and deliver training workshops in five locations. The women will make payments to the co-op, enabling more machines to be purchased, making this a perpetual project. In addition, 300 feminine hygiene kits made by Canadian women will be delivered to school girls.
