MADI partners with local people that want to make a difference in their own homes, or within their groups by sewing feminine hygiene kits to young women in need of menstrual supplies. Additionally, we partner with ladies that sew pillow case dresses, and donate them to us as we supply much needed relief to little girls.
Did you know that globally young women miss 1 week/month of education simply because they don’t have the supplies needed to attend school during their time of the month? This puts them behind the boys by 1-2 years, affecting their health, education, and potential income status in the future. We believe this should not be!
Local women (or men that like to sew) can make a difference without having to leave their home! Sewing takes place in your own home, at your own pace. Contact us today for more information about how you and/or your group of friends can join us as we fight against poverty!
Feminine Hygiene Kit contents
1 Drawstring bag so she can carry her bag to school. Comfort, style and durability matter because this will be an accessory of hers for up to 3 years.
2 pairs of panties (Girls’ size 10 – 14)
1 visual instruction sheet
8 absorbent tri-fold pads
Soft flannel liners are super absorbent when folded in three and can be layered for extra coverage. Unfolded they are square so they dry fast and wash with very little water, AND girls can dry them without risking taboos.
2 Moisture barrier shields These hold liners comfortably in place while stopping leaks.
2 one-gallon size Ziploc freezer bags
Effective for transporting soiled items and soaking and laundering items with very little water. Why Ziploc brand freezer bags? They are most durable. (Non -slider please)
1 washcloth – Useful
1 Travel-sized Soap
All this adds up to life-changing days for women and girl. Join our sewing teams today, as we deliver much needed support to young women! MADI@madinc.org
While our mission teams are in action, a common site is a little girl with torn, tattered and dirty clothes. What an unexpected blessing when we can hand them a custom-made, one of a kind, dress made just for them. If you love to sew, please consider donating your hand-sewn dresses to us. You can use any pattern you wish, just make them unique and high-quality! Select fun patterns any little girl in your life would enjoy! Here is one pattern, and a size chart for your convenience, you are under no obligation to use it-be as creative as you’d like. Contact us for a drop-off site at MADI@madinc.org
