Kick off Annual Conference by volunteering and learning about Amina's Dream Team.

 

Amina's Dream Team at Lewis Center United Methodist Church uses their sewing and non-sewing talents in support of Watoto Read, to create reusable menstrual kits to help refugee girls be able to stay in school while they are on their periods. 

Watoto Read is partnering with Days for Girls International to provide menstrual hygiene products to middle school girls. Days for Girls has developed an ingenious patented kit that includes waterproof shields and absorbent liners which act as reusable feminine pads. The kit also includes a reusable bag for storing soiled hygiene items, underwear, soap, and washcloths. These are all provided in a discreet colorful drawstring bag. Each kit lasts for up to 3 years. The kits are provided to refugee girls along with reproductive health education. These kits will help girls stay in school, build their confidence, inspire vital conversations around female health, leadership, and safety as well as preserve dignity…all through addressing periods.
