“Being caught without sanitary products sucks,” she said.

“For much of the world, this is a common occurrence, but we’re aiming to change that in Kerasawara, Nepal.”

Ms Leggett said Kerasawara was a remote, isolated village 460km from Kathmandu. She said the girls in the village did not have access to sanitary products.

“Days for Girls is making a difference by producing re-usable, sustainable sanitary pads for women in need,” Ms Leggett said.

“Only $12 buys a re-usable, sustainable sanitary kit which will last a girl two years.”

Ms Leggett said this year Days for Girls members were also hoping to teach the women of Nepal how to make the pads themselves.

“This will provide them with employment by helping them set up a cottage industry,” she said.
