Girls and women in the majority world often stay home from school or work when they are menstruating. They can't afford disposable feminine hygiene products, and often use rags instead. This great charity has developed a "kit" for girls/women with washable, re-usable products for them to use, which also includes: soap, washcloth, zip lock bags for soiled supplies, new underwear and the washable pads/holders.
All in all it went really, really well. It was a great opportunity to watch a talented African woman lead the presentation, and move into topics like staying in school, caring for your own health, controlling your destiny by not getting pregnant (or getting HIV)... we were able to give each girl a tangible "gift" that is helpful, re-usable and replicable on a local level. A big win, and hopefully it will continue on in this area.
(later when I get home I'll try to post some video's of the meeting.)
