Without access to sanitary pads, many girls and women in Africa miss school and work for a week out of every month.
Our Pads for Peace program is creating a sustainable business in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. Women make soft, reusable sanitary pads. Eliminate Poverty Now donates them to girls. They can finish high school and lift themselves out of poverty. Working women buy pads so they can get to work, and feed their families.
From now through December 31, Eliminate Poverty Now needs 50 people to each donate at least $10 at our GlobalGiving project page: Pads for Peace business educates 2000 Kenyan girls. If they do, we will be able to post ALL of the Eliminate Poverty Now projects at this important website! You can donate easily by clicking on the "give now" button.
Donations can be in honor of someone. A Red Cross survey found that 79% of Americans would rather get a charitable donation in their name than a gift they would not use!
