A few weeks ago, we launched a fundraiser on behalf of the Pardada Pardadi Educational Society. The goal of Rags-to-Pads is $5,000 that will support graduates of this rural Indian school in starting a business manufacturing and marketing sanitary pads. This provides both economic opportunity and improved health in an area where women don’t have enough of either.
As of this writing, we’re less than $250 short of our $5,000 goal!
If you read this blog, that means you’re enjoying our experience in India. We need your help to make this experience even better by giving back to our host country. All we ask is $40, which is roughly what a healthy woman in a big city spends on sanitary napkins and tampons during a year. Please help put us over the top by making a donation now!
