Bradford recently donated 1,000 bars of soap to the "Days for Girls" project. Also known as "DFG", Days for Girls is a grassroots non-profit organization whose mission is to help girls around the world become equal participants in society by providing basic needs as well as education.
A large bar of soap was included in each feminine hygiene kit that DFG shipped to girls orphanages in rural Kenya. This particular DFG project was part of a broader outreach known as The Kenyan Healthcare Initiatives. Their mission is "to alleviate human suffering by bringing improved health care and clean water to those in need - one village at a time"
We received a heartfelt thank you:
"Just wonderful. Our girls and women will be smiling. From the feedback DFG gets, you often read they wish they had large bars of soap. A bar of soap helps to change the lives of people. A bar of soap is hygiene, health, and dignity. Thank you everyone." - MaryAnn
It is inspiring to think that what we do every day at Bradford can positively impact the lives of others around the world.
