Every Girl. Everywhere. Period.

Days for Girls New Zealand is an important part of the global work and advocacy of Days for Girls International.

Why DfG?

Our washable pads are innovative enough to hold a US Patent. It is uniquely designed to wash with little water and dry quickly. Reported by users worldwide to last 2 - 5 years with proper care.


NZ teams distribute over 3500 kits in a typical year.  About 20-25% of these go to NZ women. We have partnerships to work with groups throughout the Pacific region.  

Our History

Health education is provided when kits are distributed. The focus for teams in NZ, and worldwide, is on QUALITY, not quantity of kits.  All kits components are made and given with aroha. 

In 2019 NZ kits went to the following countries (often with multiple distributions in a given country).  Borneo, Cambodia, Fiji, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Kiribati, Namibia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Samoa, Tonga, Uganda, Vanuatu, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and of course New Zealand.

We would love to hear from you so feel free to contact us.  We can provide Days for Girls washable menstrual solutions here in New Zealand or globally where Days for Girls Enterprises are not already serving local needs.  To find out about any country endorsements (for example for bag logos, ribbon, or undies) please email or ring Helen.
