STAC Continues Days for Girls Project

St. Thomas Aquinas College and the Dominican Sisters of Sparkill continue their participation in the Days for Girls project. Days for Girls is a network of dedicated and passionate individuals working to ensure women and girls have the personal hygiene solutions they need to stay in school, pursue opportunity and succeed. Female volunteers are invited to help create kits on Tuesday, March 13, 2018, and/or April 10, 2018, at the Dominican Convent, 175 Route 340, Sparkill, NY, from 5:45 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.  Community Service credit will be offered to all students who attend.

Volunteers for the project create and distribute quality, sustainable feminine hygiene kits and provide health education to women and girls around the globe who are in need, creating a more dignified, free and educated world.  Girls without access to sanitary supplies face days without leaving their homes for school or work.

Days for Girls has provided kits to over 640,000 women and girls in over 100 countries, each of which will last 2 to 3 years. This translates into over 115 million days of education and opportunity that would otherwise be lost without sustainable hygiene solutions. Days for Girls is committed to supporting a girl throughout her entire lifecycle, from providing her with a feminine hygiene kit, to teaching her health education, to offering training for her when she grows older, so that she can produce the sustainable kits and support hygiene needs in her community.

“Days for Girls is empowering women around the world by providing health education and sustainable feminine hygiene products.  Students involved feel that they are really making a difference in another girl’s life,” said St. Thomas Aquinas College’s director of health services, Eileen Mastrovito.
