Days for Girls is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to creating a more free, educated, and dignified world through providing lasting access to feminine hygiene solutions and health education. Throughout the world, millions of girls and women miss school and work every month because they lack hygiene supplies. Days for Girls is changing that. Through Days for Girls programs, women and girls discover their potential and self-value, are equal participants and agents of social change, and are given to opportunities to thrive, grow, and contribute to their community's betterment while creating access to hygiene solutions for others. Since 2008, Days for Girls has reached over 650,000 women and girls in over 100 countries.

Days for Girls is a two-time Girl Effect Champion, winner of the 2017 Classy Award, has been featured twice at the UN Commission on the Status of Women, and was named by the Huffington Post as a 'Next Ten' Organization poised to change the world in the next decade.
