You Helped Eliminate Poverty Now Qualify in GlobalGiving's December Challenge

Pads for Peace is creating a sustainable business in the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya. Women make soft, reusable sanitary pads. Eliminate Poverty Now donates them to girls. They can finish high school and lift themselves out of poverty. Working women buy pads so they can get to work, and feed their families. Your help supported the Pads for Peace project on GlobalGiving, and qualified Eliminate Poverty Now to post all our projects on the GlobalGiving website. Thank you!



The sewing center we established in the Leona, Senegal Millennium Village is already earning income after only 3 months in operation. This sewing center was initiated and funded entirely by Eliminate Poverty Now (after much prodding by Papa Sam!). It began operating just after the fall harvest in 2010. (The girls were needed for the harvest and couldn't begin their sewing classes until the harvest was done.)Check out the beautiful embroidered gowns! Visit our women's sewing centers.
