As I write this, our group has received a total of 48 sponsorships from New Zealand.
- This means we have 48 girls that will soon have their own washable sanitary pad kits, consisting of 2 washable shields to sit in their underwear and 8 removeable and washable liners. Lasting approximately 4 years (possibly longer), the cost per month is 41 cents.
- This means that those 48 girls will be able to attend school every day, even when they have their period – that may not have been the case before.
- This means that the Mamma’s Laef group are steadily building up a customer base and spreading the word of a simple piece of support that will make a huge different in the lives of girls across Vanuatu.
- This means that the Mamma’s Laef group will be receiving an income.
- This means we are making a difference.
The kits will be made in Vanuatu and once another piece of the puzzle is completed – a small booklet around menstrual hygiene management is completed – we will be able to distribute the kits to a school on the island of Epi. I’m hoping this will be possible by July this year.
