I'm trying to raise £1600 to fund the making and distribution of re useable sanitary kits to schoolgirls in a rural area of Nepal in March 2018

My Story

My son Ross was caught up in the devastating earthquake in Nepal in 2015. During the aftermath Ross was befriended by a small charity named WONDERWorks.

The work they do is amazing and as a family we are proud to support them.

Their latest project is named Project Dignity.

Across Nepal rural schoolgirls are often reluctant to attend school during their monthly period as they don't have access to sanitary pads. Missing weeks of schooling each year puts the girls at risk of dropping out, leaving them vulnerable to trafficking and early marriage. 

WONDERWorks aims to improve the lives of the women and girls in two ways:

Firstly by providing free washable sanitary kits so that the girls can participate in school with dignity and confidence and complete their education.
Secondly by providing a dignified income for exploited and trafficked women in Kathmandu. WONDERWorks provides training and pays the women a fair wage to make the kits.

It costs £8 to make and distribute each sanitary kit. 

I'm going to Nepal (self funded) in March to assist the WONDERWorks team to distribute the kits. The 2 schools chosen are in an area with a high risk of trafficking.

Any amount donated, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated and will make a huge difference to the lives of these young girls.

100% of the funds raised go directly to Project Dignity.

Thank you
