Busy month – and more kits

Another amazing session

It is always wonderful to see the amazing responses to our Days for Girls kits sent into Pakistan … we have climbed up to 146 kits

This is new information – they are interested in learning what they have never known or discussed before. The mothers are also learning – as they do not know either

There is a very logical process of learning about menstruation and then what is in the kit … Lubna is holding undies as many poor people do not wear them – but they are essential for the other parts of the kit to work

This will change their lives – keep them in school, give them choices

 

The women come for their kits – this will help them so much

Educating the educators

Last week Lubna educated the teachers at her school – we are hoping to roll out more kits with the help of UTAH and train more leaders

Lubna explaining about Days for Girls

The teachers

Well our sewing day was a great success – we hoped for 60 kits and we managed to pack 90!! Thank you to our sewers, packers and everyone behind the scenes who couldn’t make it but do an enormous amount of work to get things done so we can get on with the kits on the day.

Here are our wonderful helpers this sewing day!

Chris (L) Gill and Jenny – in the sewing room – overlocking bags and liners

the lovely Leonie in the assembly room – coordinating the work and packing them into tubs

Linda – completing bags with a smile

Our two newest members – Sue and Hilary – assembling kits …. 90 – a record

We were delighted to send shorts over to the Solomon Islands via Dress a Girl NZ –  and here they are on the line (just some of them!!) We also sent dresses to Uganda in this shipment too

Shorts for boys, t shirts and undies

Here are the boxes we sent to the Christmas Box appeal with our dresses and shorts in them – plus lots of stationery items donated through the past months

lots of kits for boys and girls – no matter where they go we have helped more children in need

We are coming into November now – our last sewing day for the year

Thank you for all your support – it is amazing

Love
