Fishers of Men, Inc. is partnering with Shalom Outreach, Inc. to bless school-aged girls in Africa by making reusable sanitary napkins. This is called the Sister2Sister Project and will allow girls to stay in school and not fall behind on their educational endeavors. Without this project, many girls will drop out of school because of accumulating too many school absences that occur because they have to stay at home during their monthly periods. During their periods, these girls may sit on boxes, use cow/elephant dung, use banana leaves or rags for menstrual pads. In addition, most schools do not have bathrooms where the girls can clean themselves. So, they end up dropping out of school, which results in the continuation of a cycle of poverty. Shalom Outreach, Inc. has adopted schools and built latrines on the school grounds. Fishers of Men, Inc. partners with Shalom Outreach, Inc. by providing a kit that includes handmade sanitary pads, underwear, washcloths, clothespins, and soap to enable the girls to remain in school during their periods. Each pad is stitched with love, to share God’s love with others, by blessing them with life’s essentials. Girls also receive instruction in personal hygiene and the use of the pads. The Sister2Sister project allows these girls to maintain their dignity and “turns their periods into pathways” to rise above poverty and embrace success. Donations are used to purchase 100 % cotton fabric to make the pads and items noted above to put into each kit. The items are placed in a zip lock freezer bag that is used to wash the reusable pads and the kit is placed in our handmade carrying bag for ease of transport to school. Your donations are appreciated and will serve to change the life of these girls.
Shalom Outreach, Inc. ministers the gospel to countries around the world, We are proud to partner with them as they minister the gospel and meet the essential needs of God’s children.
