On March 5th the youth from 6 stakes in our mission will be gathering at Wahluke High School in Mattawa for a wonderful Youth Conference. They are expecting 1000 young men and young women!
As part of the conference, the young women will learn about Days for Girls and how they can help serve girls their age in other parts of the world. Tonight I got back into my DfG groove and cut some fabric. Dozens of women have been helping to prepare fabric by washing, cutting and tracing so we have jobs for 500 young women next week. This is going to be so fun.
Here’s what the Mission Home looked like this evening:And here is a pile of fabric I’ve washed this week. It’s folded right-sides-together, ready to be traced for shields. This fabric will change lives. Pretty simple. Pretty important.I love Days for Girls. This international organization makes feminine hygiene kits for girls who have no access to hygiene products. The kits are washable and re-usable and will last 3-4 years.
You can learn more about Days for Girls at http://www.daysforgirls.org/
Here is what goes into each kit. (Now we put 2 pair of undies in each.)
