Days for Girls Spreads from Washington to Uganda, Haiti, Nicaragua, Kenya and Zambia!

Good things are happening in Washington.  We do a lot of wonderful missionary work here, but we are also spreading Days for Girls Joy.  Since we arrived here in July 2015, my friends and I have introduced 100s of women to Days for Girls and we have work days throughout or mission.

So far, good men and women here have more than 2,500 kits.  We’ve sent kits to Haiti, Uganda, Kenya, Nicaragua and Zambia.

Here are a few photos of the goodness that has come out of our Yakima area groups:

Distribution in Uganda:2017-3-30 Jaclyn Thatcher trip 1In August 2016 we sent Days for Girls kits from Yakima to a small isolated island called Brussi in Uganda.  Here are photos and a report from Jaclyn Thatcher, an LDS nurse here in Yakima who helped organize the kit distribution there.  Her husband is going to medical school here.  We were thrilled to work with both of them and other medical students who went on this expedition.2017-3-30 Jaclyn Thatcher trip 5

I’m happy that so many women and men have joined us to help girls throughout the world face their challenges with dignity.  As they say in Africa, “It’s no small thing that we do!”
