What People Say About Us!
"I love sewing for DFG kits. It’s my way of giving back to this wonderful community for which I am so grateful."
"As a volunteer and contributor for Days For Girls, I support this program because it educates girls and young women about their bodies, and the kits help them stay in school. I believe DFG ensures a better future for these young women and their communities through the empowerment of knowledge."
"We support DFG because keeping girls in school expands their opportunities. Empowering girls changes communities for the better."
"Days for Girls provides knowledge and sustainable menstrual supplies to young girls in our local community. By including boys in menstrual education, Days for Girls assists in breaking the silence, misunderstanding and stigma around sexual health and encourages healthier relationships. For me, supporting the path of empowerment and increasing self-esteem of local girls, in whatever way is possible, is critical and I believe Days for Girls is a real and tangible way to support that process."
"In supporting Days for Girls, I find it gratifying to see different cultures and countries working together to provide health education on a topic that is often neglected. The education about menstrual health which Days for Girls provides to young girls and boys removes their fear and embarrassment, and our menstrual management kits help girls to remain in school."
"Imagine being house-bound because of a lack of menstrual products. This thought never entered my mind until I heard about Days For Girls. I was heartbroken for these girls and I had to help."
"Mexican Sisters! Days for Girls is helping girls right here in our community, making them self-aware and allowing them to stay in school. Let’s join the Lake Chapala ExPats who provide contributions for our Mexican sisters around Lake Chapala."
“Girls and women deserve the opportunity to thrive and grow. Days for Girls helps them do just that. Our kits and education make a real impact on their lives. Keeping girls in school makes all the difference.”
"What I love most about Days For Girls Lake Chapala is how it helps two groups of women at once. Young girls get help with a basic, biological function that can make or break their potential to be successful in life and our female donors and volunteers, like me, have the satisfaction of knowing that every dollar they give and every action they take makes an immediate, positive and far-reaching change in a young woman's life, starting the very next month! And, of course, men are always very welcome to support this transformational work and many do. The good that Days For Girls Lake Chapala does enhances the lives of everyone involved.”
"For me Days for Girls is all about the education these girls receive from our team of leaders. They not only learn about how the female reproductive system works but a great deal of attention is paid to their quality of life, their self esteem and challenges they face in the future, including unwanted pregnancies and staying in school. We need lots of financial support and I am willing to be part of that so more girls can be helped. The power of educated young women is their only way out of poverty.”
"My husband and I support Days for Girls because a donation of money or time makes a big difference in a girl's life. I was lucky to observe the immense appreciation of teenage girls for this program and directly heard from them how this program has changed their lives. Please help change a girl's life."
“What has impressed me about the Days for Girls Lake Chapala Team is the passion and enthusiasm of the leaders. Their dedication to the program and spirit are infectious. It is no wonder this team has been so successful in a short period of time. Rick and I support DFG as one of our key Lakeside charities because we think they are making a real impact in the Lake Chapala communities. Empowering girls changes communities.”
"Removing the stigma and shame that often surround menstruation and replacing it with knowledge, tools, and confidence is life-changing for young girls. Our lofty goals are to reach and empower every young woman here at Lakeside and to provide them with what they need for their successful passage into womanhood.”
