Girls often have to remain at home during menstruation due to the lack of available hygiene pads. To help address this issue, the FTLOA Society has become a licensee of Days For Girls International (DFGI). DFGI is a non-profit organization with a mission to provide every girl and woman in need with access to quality sustainable feminine hygiene and health education. DFGI believes that lack of access to feminine hygiene tools and education can be a significant barrier to education, work, and opportunity for women.
The FTLOA-DFG concept has developed a Social Enterprise comprising unemployed women, for the manufacture and sale of DFGI-branded washable and re-usable menstrual pads. The initial training was done by the DFGI team from Kampala, Uganda, and subsequently via the DTI in Dodoma, Tanzania. Kits are sold to non-profits and ultimately distributed free of charge to girls and women living in communities surrounding the capital city, Dodoma. Your donation will buy supplies, which will continue to employ women and provide kits, which, in turn, will keep hundreds of girls in school and women at work.
