In October 2019, I will be travelling to Africa to volunteer with Life Support for Change.
Life Support for Change is a non-profit in Tanzania. LSforC support the most vulnerable women and children of the local communities in the Northern parts of Tanzania, specifically in the Arusha region.
In this part of Tanzania receiving an education is not given priority to children, particularly girls - this is a direct consequence of poverty. Girls already living in poverty are the most vulnerable, because they are unable to attend school when they have their period as they don't have access to sanitary products.
The girls pictured are part of the Life Support for Change community, In May, each of these 54 girls received a set of washable pads but there is still so many other young girls that missed out!
A set of washable pads (for one girl) costs $5 USD to manufacture. This is done by tailors local to the community.
The money that is raised will go towards buying materials and paying tailors to create the washable pads as well as furthering education throughout the community.
$1000 AUD would enable us to give almost 150 girls a washable pad and further the education of countless others.
Every single dollar raised will go DIRECTLY to the community in Tanzania. I call on all of my friends, family, colleagues (past and present) and connections to donate. Even if it's as little as $2. That's $2 going directly to a community who have a much more pressing need for it than us. #NoMoreLimits
