Bringing Girls Confidently to Womanhood


We distribute 'kits' of underwear, washable sanitary pads, and a reproductive health class to girls in Zambia. We keep girls in school!

Distributing Kits in Zambia

Keep 250 Bemba Girls in School!







OUR PROJECT:

LIFE-CHANGING & SUSTAINABLE

Girls in Zambia often resort to leaves and dirt to manage their menstrual flow.  And without knowledge of reproductive health, many become pregnant and the child brides.  For these reasons, girls drop out of school into a life of dependence.  

Meanwhile, we teach and employ young women who are hearing and speech impaired to sew our kits to create jobs and make the project sustainable.

The King of the Bemba People of 6M tribal members and the Zambian Minister of Education are partnering with Women To Be and are poised to match your donation to expand and sustain the program.  

Girls who receive kits and an education:


1. Stay in school and learn a skill.
2. Become economic drivers of the local economy.
3. Delay marriage and often have fewer children.
4. Participate in school and villiage activities and decisions.
5. Develop dignity and self confidence to be strong role models for their children.

All this for $36!

You have always wanted to change the world.  Here's your chance.
