Project Description

Region: North America

Country: Mexico

Location: Ajijic, Jalisco

Total Budget: $30,750

Area of Focus: Water, sanitation and hygiene



The objective of this project is to empower girls by providing health education workshops and washable, ecological menstrual kits to 600 girls. The workshops will be taught in primary schools in groups from 12 to 20 girls in various small communities around Lake Chapala. Upon successful completion of the workshop, each girl will receive a washable/reusable menstrual management kit that will last them for two to five years. The program will keep girls in school and give them equitable education and opportunities. The project empowers the girls to know their bodies, understand their cycles, and see their womanhood as natural and healthy.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
