Goal to Sew 64 Feminine Kits for Girls and Young Women in Africa

Orphan Grain Train’s Feminine Kits are a very beneficial “Special Project”  for people to create and donate for those in need.  The Maryland Branch has started sewing these feminine kits which are washable and reusable for girls and young women in Africa.  These girls usually miss a week of school each month because they lack access to feminine hygiene items.  Recently, a group gathered at the warehouse to work on assembling the supplies for the kits.  The goal is to sew 128 shields, enough for 64 kits.  A “sewing bee” is planned to create kits and hopefully this will be an ongoing activity
