Days for Girls envisions a world where menstruation is no longer a source of shame and taboo. Through volunteers, through enterprises, and through public and private partnerships, Days for Girls is working to shift how women and girls see themselves and are seen by their communities.
Providing girls and women with sustainable hygiene solutions, health education, and income-generation opportunities, Days for Girls is dedicated to creating a more free, dignified, and educated world.
Each DfG Kit enables millions of women and girls the opportunity to stay in school, pursue education, and succeed.
Celeste Mergens is the Founder and Executive Director of Days for Girls International. Days for Girls was born in an “ah-ha moment,” after an event in the slums of Kenya prompted the idea for a simple and sustainable solution to reversing the cycles of poverty and violence for women. Today, just five years later, Days for Girls International empowers girls, women and communities in 60 nations on six continents.
Celeste invites the world to join Days for Girls and its rapidly expanding international network in an audacious goal to create a global contagion of empowerment for every girl and woman. Everywhere. Period. By 2022.
