Days for Girls Workshops


SUMC is a registered chapter of Days for Girls (, an organization that provides quality sustainable feminine hygiene kits and education to girls and women in over 75 countries to help reverse the cycle of poverty.


We continue to make kits for girls in Ghana and Uganda in support of mission teams traveling to these countries. We have a great time at our workshops and hope that you would like to join us at any time on the following dates:


     Regular workshops will resume in September. Please check back!


We'll have sergers, all the things needed to pack kits, and a few sewing machines, but you are welcome to bring your scissors, machines, rotary cutters, and any friends who want to join us!


We also welcome donations of the following:

  • colorful washcloths - please see new DfG International Policy issued June 2017 by clicking here on types of washcloths accepted based on feedback from the girls that have received them
  • hotel size bar soap
  • boxes of gallon freezer (thicker) Ziplock brand (no sliders) plastic bags
  • cotton fabric (quilt & flannel)
  • overlocker & sewing thread
