Days for Girls, Friendswood, Texas is very excited to be collaborating with the Diocese of Texas ECW to build a network engaging in this Life Changing Ministry.
The Days for Girls organization's mission is to provide sustainable hygiene and health education to school age girls in third world countries. It is a non-profit agency that creates hygiene kits and educates girls on safe and effective use of feminine hygiene options.
Girls around the world without feminine hygiene products can miss many months of school, due to hygiene issues. To avoid missing school, girls have been known to utilize corn husks, leaves or other unreliable and unsanitary items to combat this normal hygiene issues.
