The Days for Girls Kit

 

"You feel free. You can go anywhere you want. You are comfortable…you can jump, run, do whatever you want to do.”

 

– Rachel, Nairobi, Kenya,

3 years after receiving her DfG Kit

Developing the DfG Kit has been a labor of love. We've gone through 27 iterations, incorporating feedback from thousands of women and girls around the globe in the design process.

The result? A solution that lasts for up to 3 years, has earned U.S. Patent No. 9,877,878  and:

It all starts with a DfG POD (Portable Object of Dignity), the basic unit Days for Girls Kit. PODs contain 1 waterproof shield and 2 absorbent liners. PODs are the seed for Micro-Enterprises, because they can be sold at an affordable price point, and women can add components in the future. Because DfG Kits last years, this 

is a timeline that works for many women. Days for Girls prioritizes using locally-available materials whenever possible. 

The Supreme Days for Girls Kit is the deluxe version of a Kit, and what is made by our Chapters and Teams around the world. It contains the materials shown to the right.

 

You may notice that these Kits don't look like traditional pads...and there's a reason for that. The bright colors camouflage staining. The absorbent liners unfold to look like a washcloth, which allows women to wash and dry them outside in the sun without causing embarrassment. All of these design choices add up to a lasting, easy-to-care-for solution.
