We have seen the power of menstrual health as a platform for empowerment. For this reason, all DfG Kit distributions are conducted with health education.

Education & Trainings

We want to provide you with all the educational tools necessary to set you up for the best distribution experience possible! We have online courses, live workshops, and distribution flip-chart materials available for purchase from our online shop.

AWH 201

LIVE COURSE

Join us for a full day of fun and instruction!

This workshop is intended to train Days for Girls Ambassadors of Women's Health who may then teach other women and girls around the globe about their strength, importance, health, puberty, reproduction, how to care for and use kits and much much more!

 

Cost + what's included

Each live training is $55 and includes your choice of one of these publications: AWH Training Manual, AWH Flipchart English, or AWH Flipchart Spanish.  Pre-registration and payment is required before attending. 

 

What's covered?
  • The story and philosophy of Days for Girls

  • Cultural Bridging, the basis of DfG

  • Leadership

  • Teaching Reproductive anatomy

  • Explanation of the cycle 

  • Women + community education

 

You will be educated about 'bridging' to meet cultures different from yours to build results (this also applies to business, family, and all kinds of connections). You will also be brought up to be speed on the state of women's status in the world. Women's health is more complicated than men's and is often shrouded in shame and misinformation. Because of this, women have slipped behind in societies all over the globe. We seek to change that through the door of basic health supplies. You'll be ready to conduct culturally appropriate distributions for the region with confidence, and empower lives.  We encourage men to attend this life changing training as well!

 

It is highly recommended that you attend the full day of the event. Questions? Email us at Ambassadors@daysforgirls.org  

  • Hygiene

  • Self defense

  • How to train others

  • Continuing the flow of information

  • And much more

Upcoming AWH

Wow, I am so pumped over the training with you! It was so much more than I ever imgained! You covered so much my head is swimming!...You have given me a new outlook on DfG that is even bigger than I had before. I understand so much more now and truly believe any of us at these training meetings should be able to teach others of their importance in this world. I pray I get the opportunity to do just that!

I had no idea I would get this much out of the course.

AWH 201 Reviews

Life changing. Far more information than I was expecting. I feel inspired, and ready to make a bigger difference.

I found this very, very informative, well presented and very exciting to know how much Days for Girls is changing lives. I can't wait to present this to many girls and women...and boys.

I am so glad I was able to be part of this training. I have taken many training courses and this one was the best I have ever taken anywhere.

I got so much more out of this than I ever imagined. Everyone should get this opportunity.

Like a 2-day TED Talk that I didn't want to leave...
