Period Poverty

Since I'm on a roll I may as well continue. Several weeks ago I posted that I was coordinating a sew day for a missionary to bring back washable menstrual pads to the Ivory Coast for Dignity Days for girls. You can read about it HERE and HERE.

We ended up with 55 pads. I gave her my leftover fabric and when she gets back we will see how it goes. We may end up supplying her with more supplies if she can find a few people who may like to start a little business there making them. It would be a win- win!
Thanks for your information and encouragement!

I hope you are having a great week.


  1. That is a great effort! Our women's group has been involved making pads for girls and supporting the efforts for education. I don't think ours looked at pretty as yours though :-)

  2. This is wonderful, Lori!
    A scripture comes to mind as I read about all the good you are doing--Acts 10:38 refers to how Jesus "went about doing good". You epitomize that!
