100 Days of Cloth Pads: Making 120 cloth pads in 100 days for Kenyan schoolgirls

Update posted by Safira van Veen On Apr 20, 2018

Dear everyone:


Thanks to all of my wonderful backers, my campaign is now fully funded - actually, overfunded! This means I now have enough to make all of the 120 cloth pads, plus have extra money for postage to send them to Too Little Children, with perhaps even a little extra money to donate straight to the organisation for them to use in their other charitable projects. Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has donated and made this possible. I am beyond grateful.


I withdrew the funds from the first week of the campaign today, and once they have arrived in my bank account I will be placing my first order, for 14 metres of Terry cloth to make 480 pad liners. My supplier has very generously offered to donate extra fabric remnants, which will help me reduce the amount of Terry cloth I actually have to order to less than 14m, and will therefore make your donations go further.


I have also negotiated a discount with the supplier who will be providing the PUL fabric for this project, so having the support of my two main suppliers just makes it all go that little bit further.


Once again, THANK YOU to everyone who has supported this campaign, and the project overall. I am overwhelmed by people's generosity and enthusiasm for what I'm doing, and I can't wait to get started on actually making the pads. I will continue to update you all on my progress via my Instagram account, @quilts.by.safira.


Thanks guys, you're the BEST.


All my love and thanks,

Safira

What an amazing project! In too many parts of the world girls are discriminated against or have to work twice as hard to be able to have the same (or half) of the opportunities of their male counterparts. A thing as simple as having a sanitary pad can open so many doors for these girls.
