You probably don't think too much about sanitary supplies.  If you are a woman, you get them when you need them, and if you are a man, you probably don't think of them at all.  But girls in Third World Countries, just like many homeless and poverty stricken, are often forced to miss school, be socially ostracized, and isolated during those days of the month.  An organization called Days for Girls has quietly been working not only to bring these young women supplies, but also to study exactly what girls in those situations can use, can maintain, and can carry within their cultures and their social groups. 

It's really a fascinating story of women helping women and doing so in a sensitive and open way.  Join us as we talk with April Haberman of Days for Girls International.  You may find yourself amazed that no one thought of this sooner.
