Day for Girls

Seven high school aged girls  traveled to Dera and on the International Day of the Girl Child met with similarly aged Ethiopian girls.  These teenagers discussed the blessings and challenges of womanhood and taught one another how to live true to their potential.

The American girls then broke the taboo subject of feminine hygiene and proper health care before distributing hygiene kits.

Thank you to Big Ocean Women for preparing and sharing the kits; they are changing lives by enabling girls to attend school without fear of embarrassment.
