GEMpads - washable sanitary pads (Five for $25)

25.00

GEM pads (similar to AFRIpads) are washable, recyclable sanitary pads that last one year. They are essential - many girls drop out of school when they hit puberty because they can't afford pads; others skip school days when they have their period and thus fall behind in their studies. Each kit contains 4 pads.

GEMpads are handcrafted by the 206 girls in GEM - Girls Education Movement - a humanist girls group in Kyarumba, Uganda.  GEM's goal is to encourage orphaned, poor, and vulnerable girls to stay in school by conducting fund-raising activities - selling handcrafts and gardening - to raise money for books, school supplies, and school uniforms.

Donors who buy GEMpads help Ugandan girls in two ways:

1) You provide a free washable pad to a girl, enabling her to stay in school.

2) You provide $25 in funds to a girls group; this helps them stay in school. 

To donate more than $25, PayPal your chosen amount to brighterbrainsinstitute@gmail.com and contact that email address with a message.
