Reusable sanitary towels


In the fight to give girls in Africa an education, there is a simple but powerful tool. It's a sanitary towel.

Without proper protection, girls can miss up to a week of lessons every month. Many will fall behind and eventually be forced to drop out of school – denying them the opportunities they are entitled to.

Your gift could train a girl to make reusable towels in a vital one day workshop, including supplying all the materials she will need to get started.

How it works

Each alternative gift includes a beautiful postcard recognising the contribution made in the recipient's name. It describes how the gift will support education in the communities we work with.

  • Choose an alternative gift
  • If you'd like your gift sent directly to a friend: add a personal message in the box below (to be handwritten on your behalf), then tell us their address on the next page
  • Or, we can deliver a blank card card straight to you, so you can add your own greeting

All of our gifts represent aspects of real long-term projects in rural Africa. As the need for funding and support can change within each community we partner with, your gift will be used wherever it is needed most.
