Since 2001, Diva International Inc. (Diva) has been challenging the period status quo with the DivaCup®, the original, reusable, convenient silicone menstrual cup which is also the top selling menstrual cup in the world.
Diva have moved beyond tradition, redesigning the look and feel of the feminine hygiene industry with better products and a better name – period care.
We are delighted that Diva International has agreed to partner with us, through their social impact program DivaCares, and supply Canadian Chapters and Teams with Diva cups for our DfG hybrid kits. Hybrid kits contain the Days for Girls shields and liners but also provide menstrual cups and one or two disposable products. The hybrid kits are distributed to local food banks and women’s shelters to help women who are going through a stressful time.
They have pledged to partner with us going forward. Thank you to the DivaCares program for this very important partnership. This will definitely help us reach Every Girl, Everywhere, Period.
For over one hundred years, Save the Children has been helping ensure children survive, are protected from harm, and have the opportunity to learn. When disaster strikes, we are often the first on the ground and the last to leave, helping children regardless of who they are or where they live. We reach the most vulnerable children in nearly 120 countries around the world, and right here at home.
In Canada, Save the Children recognizes that not all children’s rights are equally realized; those most deprived of their rights are First Nations, Métis and Inuit children. This has devastating impacts on them, their families, communities and nations. That’s why our National Reconciliation Program focuses our work in Canada on reconciliation through a child-centred approach. Areas of literacy, maternal and newborn health, mental health and wellness, and emergency preparedness and recovery are among our core priorities for Indigenous children across the country.
Days for Girls Canada is delighted to contribute menstrual kits to Save the Children.
Days for Girls Canada has partnered with World Vision Canada’s (WVC) Resource in Kind section for a few years now. WVC has projects going on all over the world and our Kits are a perfect complement to the work they are doing. WVC collects the Kits at their expense and ships them by container along with other supplies destined for their various projects.
WVC representatives in the field, working on these projects, have taken the Ambassador of Women’s Health Course provided by Days for Girls International, which allows them to carry out the education portion of our work. WVC have distributed Kits on our behalf in many countries around the world and in refugee camps in the Middle East and Africa.
