MISSION CAPSULE: In India, many girls miss school each month because they do not have the supplies or facilities they need during menstruation. Unsanitary practices put them and their communities at risk. PWS&D supported community mobilizers are helping girls in India stay in school by educating them about personal and menstrual hygiene. Rima Kumari, a 14 years old girl from Nandlali village spent time with a community mobilizer. She received sustainable, reusable sanitary napkins and learned about personal hygiene practices. Now, with the supplies she needs, Rima can embrace the joy of uninterrupted learning..

HASSAN AND FAMILY – we need – a dining table, a kettle, cooking utensils, pillow cases, double bed sheets, futon mattress, tea towels, oven mitts and I think a toaster. So far, we have been promised a set of dishes, a set of knives, cutlery and a 4 x 6 rug. Please keep in mind we have no place to store anything.

When Peter and I did inventory, we found twin bed sheets and towels that have been in a bag for the past several years, they will need to be laundered.

They will be arriving within the next 8 weeks and we will be given 10 days notice.
