What is Days for Girls?
Sipa has partnered with Days for Girls International www.daysforgirls.org, a grass roots not for profit organisation helping women and girls discover their true potential and self value as equal participants to contribute to their community’s betterment while ensuring quality sustainable feminine hygiene.
Sipa is passionate in its belief that the poverty cycle can be broken when girls stay in school and that every girl in the world deserves education, safety, and dignity. Days for Girls helps girls gain access to quality sustainable feminine hygiene and awareness, by direct distribution of sustainable feminine hygiene kits, by raising awareness, and by helping the communities in which we operate to build their own manufacturing and distribution systems. The DFG kits sanitary kits are reusable and come with a washing bag and three washable pads.
The Sipa Days for Girls project commenced in December 2014 and was rolled out to its first schools in March 2015. The aim of the program is to increase the number of girls who continue to participate in school-based education after year seven. So far the program has distributed kits to more than 2000 pupils in 20 schools within the Lamwo District.
The program has a number of components
