Celeste Mergens, PNW Passport Rotary member and founder of Days for Girls International, invites you to change lives by participating in one of the events below. 

Days for Girls began as a volunteer-run organization. What began in November 2008 as a small yet passionate group of women (and some men!) has rapidly grown into a robust network of more than 50,000 volunteers around the globe.

Volunteers gather together, or work independently, to promote our mission in many ways. Most sew and assemble the DfG Kits, focusing on either complete DfG Kits or specific components.

Days for Girls increases access to menstrual care and education by developing global partnerships, cultivating social enterprises, mobilizing volunteers, and innovating sustainable solutions that shatter stigmas and limitations for women and girls.

Together, we're creating a world with dignity, health, and opportunity for all.

Around the world, girls and women resort to using rags, mattress stuffing, banana leaves, feathers, and even cow dung to manage their menstruation.
