DfG Chapters, Teams and Clubs work to end the stigma associated with menstruation. Their efforts include fundraising, sewing and donating DfG Kits to specific countries, elevating the efforts of locally run social enterprises, increasing access to menstrual health education, awareness raising, and advocacy. Teams have the opportunity to progress to being a Chapter if that is their goal, after meeting certain benchmarks. Clubs are for students or troops. Keep reading to find out more!
In addition to activities like advocacy and fundraising many DfG Chapters and Teams choose to lead sewing DfG Kit activities. Clubs do not sew DfG Kits independently.
Clubs that wish to be involved in DfG Kit productions (be it sewing or packing) can get connected with an existing DfG Team and participate in their Kit production and packing effort.
Team Leaders must be over 18 years old and generally remain from year to year. DfG Team members can be any age, everyone has important skills to contribute! Club members and student leadership may come and go each year.
