Sending Days for Girls Kits to Kenya

Monday, July 08, 2019

The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® recently completed a collaboration to send 4,000 Days for Girls (DfG) Kits to Kenya. After getting DfG groups across the United States to contribute kits, Huldah Hiltsley took them to Kenya. Huldah and her family visited 29 schools, a maternity clinic, and a women’s shelter to distribute the kits and provide accompanying health education. This coming year, the Hitsleys will be working to employ women in Kenya to sew 7,000 DfG Kits. Having women in Kenya create these kits not only helps eliminate logistic challenges associated with shipping, but also provides employment opportunities for local Kenyan women to support their families. Ultimately, this project supports the mission of Days for Girls, which is to empower women in their communities and make a positive and sustainable change.
