Studio Samuel Girls Prepare for International Day of the Girl 2017
Studio Samuel students are learning basic sewing skills in their occupational training class by sewing 500 menstrual kits, which they’ll distribute to girls who lack access to feminine hygiene supplies. In developing countries, this is one of the biggest contributors to girls dropping out of school.
Last year, the girls celebrated International Day of the Girl (Oct 11) by visiting schools in the rural area and distributing 250 kits to girls in need. Because of the program’s success, there’s now a waiting list at 16 schools! The girls are working hard to double last year’s impact and reach 500 girls this year.
It’s with many thanks to The White Feather Foundation and their supporters for spearheading this initiative last year by providing supplies, including new sewing machines. #IDG2017
