And the work goes on!

Even though it has been three months since we were in Madagascar we continue to work for and with the people on an almost daily basis. 

It has been very exciting for me (Sue) to see the changes in confidence amongst the women in regard to the Days for Girls Enterprise since the visit this year.  Having Harisoa work as a dedicated DfG assistant with Chretienne at the Women's Center has meant we can make much more progress with Days for Girls.

Last month was very busy for the women, as they had received an order from DfG International as part of DfG's 10th birthday celebrations.  They made 500 DfG basics kits (1 shield and 4 liners in each) and then travelled to 9 different villages to distribute them.  757 women and girls listened to the health and hygiene talks, and so now understand more of how their bodies work.  500 of them were lucky enough to receive these free kits!

This month, Harisoa is travelling north to Mahabo to do more distributions there and Oliviah has been in the capital talking at a couple of churches about DfG. 

We are in communications with a Malagasy business who are thinking of placing an order each month for a year, with Projet Jeune who have applied for a grant which will enable them to order 1,800 kits from the Enterprise, and with a group from a school in New Zealand.  Prayers that some of these projects succeed would be much appreciated.
