The Days for Girls Social Entrepreneurship program is a global network of community-based businesses that produce and distribute the patented Days for Girls Kits.
Alice Wambui Mwangi is passionate about fighting for change on behalf of Kenya’s next generation of menstruators – a calling that’s partially driven by her own childhood struggles with period poverty, which compromised her academic performance and made her wish she was a boy.
Today, Alice’s Smile Star’D Enterprise serves women and girls all over Kenya with DfG Kits, education and face masks (even when doing so requires long, exhausting, back-to-back travel days into rural communities).
We are making washable menstrual kits that help keep girls in school and give them hope for breaking the cycle of early marriage and childbirth. An educated girl can break the cycle of poverty and empower her to follow her dreams.
