BPW - DAYS FOR GIRLS
The club supports the BPW "Days for Girls" project. Many girls in certain countries are kept out of school either permanently or every month because they do not have the skills nor the materials to cope with something as ‘fundamentally female’ as menstruation.  Day for Girls raises awareness of this obstacle to girls’ education, and produces and distributes sustainable feminine hygiene kits  

We now have 10 Members who have graduated from the Leadership Institute!  It's part of what Rotary can do for you, such as Leadership Training.
