Every year the number of non profit organizations continually expand, globally. Most of them are sparked from one or more person that came across an issue or problem in their personal life or they witnessed something, usually a problem or concern, happening outside of their personal life that moved them so much, it changed them and their life perspective forever and resulted in them becoming an activist.

Sometimes the name NGO (Non Government Organization) is ascribed to non profit organizations which are those organizations that are addressing a social or political problem.
Days for Girls is such an organization. Founded in 2008, the organization focuses on empowering girls globally. Their DFG kits provides hygiene maintenance products globally to girls afflicted by poverty. This was after the founder became aware of the crippling effect when they were experiencing their monthly periods. They could not go to school, were often left in shameful isolation and unable to interact with others due to lack of hygiene items. The lack of hygiene products were already an instrument in creating a destiny of continued poverty for these girls.
Days for Girls is doing great work and is a reminder that every girl is amazing and precious and with the right support she has within her the power to re-direct the world’s future.
