Thirty staff and student volunteers recently spent time supporting the charity, Days for Girls, producing 300 liners which will contribute to sanitary kits due to be distributed to Cambodian girls and women in October.
Days for Girl is committed to supporting a girl throughout her entire lifecycle, from providing her with a DfG Kit, to teaching her health education, to offering training for her when she grows older, so that she can produce DfG Kits and support hygiene needs in her community. Today, Days for Girls has reached more than one million women and girls in 125+ countries and will shortly celebrate its 11th anniversary.
Barker College Footprint Co-ordinator, Cathie Glendenning, said, " This is a wonderful initiative that covers the two themes central to Footprint – social justice and ecological sustainability. Reusable sanitary kits empower girls and women, reduce absence rates from schools and reduce sanitary waste and pollution."
