This means that 40 more girls will be able to stay in school while they have their periods. If they can stay in school, they can earn more income and lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
|Secondary education for girls has the following effects: |
empowerment of women, economic opportunity for women,
increases gdp, reduces infant mortality, reduces overpopulation,
reduces malnutrition, reduces the incidence of HIV/AIDS
The club has been very supportive of EPN, inviting John and Judy to speak to the group, and now donating $1000.00 for the RockPads project. Many thanks to everyone at the Carbondale Rotary Club, but most especially to the members of the international committee who reviewed the grant: Ann Harris, John Baker, Ted Miller and Tripp Adams. We are so grateful for your support.
We hope that you will all join us in thanking the Rotary Club for this generous grant.
You can join the Rotary Club in supplying even more young girls with these kits by donating to the RockPads project.
