Days for Girls

Days for Girls are kits that contain sanitary products for girls to use during their menstrual cycles. These kits include:

Reusable Pads (made from fabric and impermeable plastic liner with buttons to fold them up to fit in a purse)

Plastic Bag

Bar of Soap

Used suitcases to send the kits with volunteers

These kits are sent to girls so that they can continue to go to school without the monthly interruption of their periods which causes them to fall behind. The UWD also provides these kits for women who suffer from fistulas so that they might continue with their lives with less interruption until they are able to have them fixed at a hospital. 


If you are interested in learning more about these kits, please email, call (336) 725-6413, or stop by the office at

459 South Church Street, Winston-Salem, NC 27101.
