Visitation students make reusable packs

Roughly 100 student volunteers from Visitation School and the national nonprofit organization Days for Girls gathered at Visitation April 28 to cut, sew and assemble reusable feminine hygiene products and education kits for girls in developing nations. 

 These simple kits help provide a woman or girl with dignity, health and the opportunity to continue school or participate in their community without taking time off during her monthly menstrual flow. Without the kit, many girls in developing countries fall behind in school and are unable to work or participate in community activities. The event was sponsored by Visitation’s Upper School Student Council and the Women ActiVISts student group.
