Welcome to Grandma Martha's Hygiene Kits for Girls Project! We are so glad you are here! This project is created by Martha Taylor, of Branson, Missouri & Missy Thiersaint Onoh, a native of Haiti.
After several long conversations about the feminine hygiene needs of girls in third world countries, we decided to do something about it!
We are so excited about this project and the difference it will make! We started this project to provide easier access to personal hygiene items for women and girls in the Village of Cotes-de-Fer, Haiti. Typically, girls in remote villages alike have no access to disposable feminine products. Unfortunately, if these items are available, most families are not able to afford them. We have listened to the community and have personally designed and sewn each kit to fit the needs of the women and girls in this wonderful village.
We would like to start the school year with 400 kits. Each completed hygiene kit cost $8 to make at this time and will include:
- Six Period Proof Washable Feminine Pads - A Wet Bag
- 2 pairs of undergarments
- A wash cloth
- An Inspirational note and bible verse.
We will be working directly with individual schools and we aim to come along side dedicated health educators to create a health education program for the local schoolgirls. A kit will be provided at no charge to each schoolgirl after participating in this program. Our goal is to provide a kit to every girl before starting their first period between the ages of 8 and 18 in the village of Cotes-de-Fer, Haiti. The hope is to begin this ministry project in the village of Cotes- de-Fer and expand it one village at a time until we can reach the whole country, and eventually other third world nations!
We hope that you too will join us in this journey and share the love of Christ with the women and young girls of these beautiful nations!
