Sanitary towels


Sanitary towels are more powerful than you’d think.

Without them, girls across rural Africa are forced to miss lessons every month. They can face discrimination, fall behind in school, and eventually drop out.

Your gift could help provide an important ‘dignity kit’ for four girls in urgent need, including sanitary towels, underwear and hygienic soap – so they can stay healthy, avoid bullying and get the most from their time at school.

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 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.
