Girls in developing countries often drop out of school when they reach puberty because they have no access to feminine hygiene products. The MoonCatcher Project provide reusable, washable, menstrual pads that can be worn without underwear to girls in the poorest communities worldwide. These pads make going to school while menstruating possible and this helps keep girls in school.
Educating girls is the most effective means of improving their lives and fostering economic development in developing countries. The work of the MoonCatcher Project makes it possible for girls to stay in school. Getting an education helps girls marry later, have fewer children at a later age, and gain financial independence which helps themselves and their families.
Even if you can’t sew, you can participate in and enjoy a MoonCatcher Sewing Bee. There are useful jobs for everyone, skilled or unskilled. MoonCatcher MoonBee volunteers are women, men and children, of every age.
No fun, social occasion that you could ever attend could also make you feel so useful. Volunteers arrive in groups or alone, and become friends, working together.
If you have any of the following items, please bring them along: Sewing machines, Irons and ironing boards, Scissors
Change the life of a Girl. Our MoonCatcher pad kit costs $5.07 to make. With this in mind you may also want to consider making a $5.07 gift at the MoonBee.
