» “Stitch for Kayoro” on October 22

Posted on: October 2, 2018

When girls in developing nations don’t have access to menstrual supplies, they are forced to miss school, falling further and further behind their male counterparts. Sometimes they are even left with no option but to drop out of school entirely. Reusable menstrual kits from Days for Girls empower girls to continue their education uninterrupted.

The last two groups from St. John’s that traveled to Uganda purchased Days for Girls kits to bring to the young women of Kayoro. Now we’re joining with Ascension Church to form an official team that will make the reusable supplies from scratch.  Cutters and stitchers are encouraged to join us in the Gathering Space on Monday, October 22 from 4-9pm. A light supper will be served.
