DAYS FOR GIRLS

On Sunday May 28th several members gathered to sew drawstring bags for Days for Girls  www.daysforgirls.org/canada-chapters-and-teams

Days for Girls is committed to supporting a girl throughout her entire lifecycle, from providing her with a DfG Kit, to teaching her health education, to offering training for her when she grows older, so that she can produce DfG Kits and support hygiene needs in her community.

SI Grand Erie is proud to be working with the Kitchener chapter of Days for Girls.
