Around the world, girls lack the ability and support to manage their periods with dignity.

They may miss up to 4 days of school each month.

They may trade themselves (or be traded) to receive hygiene products.

Taboos and mis-information cause confusion, embarrassment and shame.

WorldServe International is working to change this for women and girls in three ways:

  1. Equipping girls with a year’s supply of biodegradable sanitary pads and quality undergarments.
  2. Educating girls about their bodies through health curriculum presented with compassion and grace.
  3. Employing women to earn a fair wage by working to sustainably produce sanitary pads for their local communities.

Girls No Longer Have To Miss School

Join THIS GIRL to provide dignity, health and education.

$15 a month provides the dignity, health, and education every girl deserves. In East Africa, WorldServe International distributes 100% compostable sanitary pads (made locally by women employed at a fair wage), along with a comprehensive menstrual health curriculum, and undergarments. Without this basic dignity, a girl can miss up to 4 days of school each month!

A Note for Group Coordinators

Tanzania Water Fund

The Tanzania Water Fund is based in Phoenix Arizona and has been funding wells in Singida, Tanzania for over 15 years.  Ten years ago, TWF and WorldServe forged a partnership for mutual funding of water projects in this region because of the severity of the need for clean water.  Since then, TWF has partnered on over 35 clean water projects and intends to continue partnering with us to accomplish its mission: to solve the water problem in Singida by seeing that a deep well, power source and storage tank is provided to each village in the district. Dean Riesen, Chairman of Tanzania Water Fund, also serves as a board member of WorldServe International.
