NGO extends helping hand to resource-strapped Africa

文字-A A +A

Sanitary pads are an essential item in every woman’s life. In Taiwan, a wide variety of sanitary pads are readily available from convenience stores. In Africa, however, where the degree of development is slower and even access to food is often a problem, sanitary pads are a veritable luxury and many women have no access to them.

Recently, the counseling office at Ginling Girls’ High School in New Taipei City contacted Step 30 to get involved in its Love Binti Project. In just two months, students at the school made 1000 sanitary pads and sent them to Africa as a token of their goodwill and love. Now in its fourth year, the Love Binti Project is expanding its program to refugee camps on the Ugandan border, where girls are being taught the skills necessary to make their own sanitary pads.

The Love Binti Project plans to continue collecting sanitary pads and implementing teaching activities in Africa long into the future. As long as women still need sanitary pads, the Love Binti Project will continue extending a helping hand and sending its love.

衛生棉是女性生理期必備品,在台灣從便利商店裡,就可以買到各式各樣的衛生棉,但在發展程度緩慢的非洲,連吃飽都是問題,衛生棉更是奢侈品,因此許多地區的女性,連衛生棉都沒有。

位在新北市的金陵女中,就由輔導室接洽NGO組織「愛女孩計畫」,在短短兩個月內完成1000份布衛生棉,在一針一線的用心下,將愛送往非洲。「愛女孩計畫」發展至今,即將滿四周年,今年還會擴大計畫,在烏干達邊境的難民營裡,教導女孩製作布衛生棉的技能。

未來「愛女孩計畫」將持續募集布衛生棉,以及執行非洲的教學活動,只要還有女性需要衛生棉,這項計畫就不會停止送愛。
