From 3:45 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. on Monday, April 8th and Wednesday, April 10th, we will gather a group together after school to work on sewing feminine hygiene kits for girls in Ugandan schools. Schools that use these kits have reduced the dropout rate of female students to 8%. The kits are safe, washable and reusable. Once students in Uganda receive the kits, they will learn how to make more. We are doing this project in partnership with Project Ensonga, the Children's Center, Centenary High School and Double Cure Medical Center in Uganda. Members of this school community visited us in November 2015 and is the school where Elizabeth McLaughlin '17 sent our old kilts.
We are looking for volunteers to help in various ways. We need sewers, people to cut and iron fabric and packers. There can be a job for anyone! If you plan to sew, you will need to bring a sewing machine to the event. All other supplies are provided.
