#1004100 Campaign has started
We run donation drives for vulnerable and homeless women. Following our workshops we acknowledge a need for sanitary items to be funded / supplied in schools.
Therefore donations received will be distributed to schools we are linked with as well as No Recourse to Public Funds families, who are of low income.
We have an exciting campaign coming in September 2018..... #1004100
If you are unable to attend, you still can support us and donate via our Go Fund Me https://www.gofundme.com/promoting-period-empowerment
