How you can help us

There is a cost to supporting a new site in becoming independent. Perhaps most significantly, high quality training throughout the two year development plan is essential to a school becoming self-supporting.
 For example, for a school with 50 girls as beneficiaries, some of the costs will be:

  • £1200 to set up a sewing room (two machines and materials) with the school providing a textile teacher and a secure room.
  • £450 for the running of an introductory day for community leaders, parents, teachers and peer educators to ensure clear understanding of the scope of the project.
  • £200 for two tailors from an experienced site to come and run a training day at the new school.
  • £100 for food for a day workshop for Auntie Stella discussion groups
  • £50 for monthly phone allowances for the key leaders, the girls and Joy to keep in touch
  • £30 for 50 girls at a new school to have a month’s disposable pads whilst becoming independent users of a menstrual cup or washable pads
  • £15 for a menstrual cup, a mug for sterilising it and two pairs of panties for a new girl.
  • £5 for a bar of washing soap and two pairs of panties for a new washable pad user.
