This report from Sarah Brown arrived today. Makes my heart sing!
During a recent humanitarian trip to Bayaguana, Dominican Republic, I was able to help deliver 400 reusable feminine hygiene kits to a local high school. We taught the girls right in their classrooms, with the teenage boys. It was such a special experience seeing their faces light up as they realized how much money their families were going to save by using these kits! One of the neatest experiences of that day was when this young man asked me if he could take a kit home for …his sister. She was not old enough to attend the high school we were at and he knew that she was approaching the time where she would need a kit. I was overcome with emotion as I too realized how much this young man cared for his family, his sister, and the financial situation his family was in. Thank you for donating these kits and allowing me to be part of this wonderful opportunity and organization!
Several young men asked if they could take one home for their mothers! Helping teach the young women and men helped me realize that given the opportunity, young men will also believe in this project. The girls said the kits are Brilliant!
