Your $75 Sponsorship will enable us to create packs with toothbrushes, paste, deodorants, soaps, hair care, towels, and underwear. Menstrual hygiene items will include sustainable menstrual cups because the health of our environment and the health of our young people go hand in hand.
Giving gifts of hygiene supports normal adolescent development- social, mental, physical. It allows our teens to feel included and helps with self-esteem.
Deodorant and menstrual products are considered a necessity by most of us, but many of our most vulnerable children don’t even have a hygienic toothbrush. Using newspaper or old cloths whilst menstruating is just too awkward to manage outside of home. Many youth have dental and hygiene problems that won’t be fixed by a new toothbrush but will make them feel a bit fresher and importantly, feel valued.
This is a project under development and we are actively canvassing for partners to build a sustainable model of giving.
Your Sponsorship will make a difference. Thanks for being an Angel with us.
