You can help prevent all this by supporting our mission to fight period poverty. We provide menstrual pads and other toiletries to girls in need. These necessities are packed in a small bag that we call GN Packs (Girl’s Necessities Packs).
A typical GN pack may include one pack of menstrual pads and some of the following: body lotion, soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, bras, and underwear.
A GN pack costs $12; we have provided 50 GN packs per month with your donations, but considering the high demand, this year, we aimed to increase the support to 100 GN packs. You can help by supporting one or many girls each month. Any amount you donate will be beneficial.
