Project Imagine was initiated in August of 2015. Access to sanitary towels is a critical factor in whether a girl continues her education – we often this basic necessity take it for granted.
Since August of 2015, Project Imagine has grown into a group of over 40 high school students, all passionate and dedicated towards keeping girls in school and giving them the chance they deserve to succeed.
Besides giving sanitary towels to girls, the main focus of our distributions is to develop peer-to-peer relationships and empower girls by providing them with knowledge and instilling confidence within each of them.
During our distributions, we ask the girls what their hopes and dreams for the future are. They want to be doctors, pilots, pastors, teachers, and so many other wonderful things. It broke our hearts to think that girls just like them, all over the world, wouldn't get a fair chance at their dreams because of a basic necessity like access to sanitary towels.
