– Days for Girls – Want to Make a Difference in the World?
“Days for Girls International empowers women and girls around the globe providing sustainable feminine hygiene solutions and health education.”


– From the Days for Girls Yelm Chapter – participants recently returned from a Utah gathering:
“Recognize your friends and neighbors? They are sewing AND they are reversing the cycle of poverty. This simple act of kindness will reach a young woman on the other side of the world. She will cherish this gift that they are sewing. She will use this beautiful feminine hygiene kit for at least three years. In those three years she will be able to stay in school and get the education that will increase her family’s income by 60 percent. She will teach her community to do the same.

If you have ever longed to make a real difference in the world—this is your opportunity. We have formed an official chapter of Days for Girls International here in Yelm. Of course, anyone, anywhere can participate, but if you live near here you can join us for a sewing day, you can contribute fabric, wash clothes, soap, zip lock bags—and a whole list of items.

We are currently working to complete 100 kits by January 15 to send with a group who is going to Cambodia. It will be a fun and rewarding project.

Come join us and be a part of giving girls back five extra days of living and learning every single month. You can email us at yelmwa@daysforgirls.org, Anita Marriott or Jan Jones.

– Mission:
Creating a more free, dignified, and educated world through access to lasting feminine hygiene solutions and community-based health leadership programs.

Days for Girls International is a grassroots 501(c)3 non-profit. Women, and girls discover their potential and self-value, are equal participants and agents of social change and are given opportunities to thrive, grow and contribute to their community’s betterment while ensuring quality sustainable feminine hygiene.


– Vision:
Every girl and woman in the world with ready feasible access to quality sustainable hygiene & health education by 2022.​
