Our Guest speaker this week was Denise Talbot from Days for Girls International. A sustainable female hygiene program, with a vision that every girl in the world has ready access to quality sustainable hygiene by 2022.
Denise spoke passionately about what some girls have to endure: the days of isolation, days of shame, days of missing school, days of lost income, days lost due to lack of access to feminine hygiene products.
Days for Girls kits change all this for girls around the world. Month after month, recipients can count on quality, practical and sustainable solutions that are funded and hand crafted with love by thousands of dedicated volunteers worldwide. Tasmania has four Chapters. Denise’s Chapter meet every second Saturday 9.30-2.00 ( Bring your own lunch) at the Catholic Parish House in Longford. They also meet mid week. All donations and volunteers are welcome for more details please contact Denise at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0419 370 646.
David Dunn gave a spirited members minute informing us of some of the dos and don’ts when going to Service Tasmania. Next week will be David’s final meeting with us as he is moving to Hobart to take up a new position. Thus we are having a farewell breakfast at what used to be Net19 and is now Maple Cafe at 7.00am. All welcome to join us.
