ROTARY CLUB OF WYNNUM MANLY’S DAYS FOR GIRLS PROJECT - The Community Leader and Real Estate New and Views


Days for Girls volunteers work to get safe, beautiful, washable, and long-lasting feminine hygiene kits into the hands of those who would otherwise go without. These kits have reached more than one million girls around the world already so together our aim is to create a world with dignity, health, and equal opportunity for all.

If volunteering, sewing and helping a great humanitarian project is something that you could be interested in then The Rotary Club of Wynnum and Manly Days for Girls (DFG) project might be right for you. The Rotary Club have recently established a group of Rotary and community volunteers who meet to help make and distribute much needed feminine hygiene kits for girls in remote Australian communities and developing countries overseas.

Days for Girls group leader and organiser Dianne Catto explained, “Meeting fortnightly provides the opportunity for women from our local community to serve as volunteers in a safe, fun environment where they can use their skills and develop new skills as they assist in all tasks within the project. From washing and ironing donated material to creating templates, cutting out patterns and sewing kits – there is definitely a role for everyone”.

The newly formed group meet every second Thursday at the Shire Clerks Cottage in Tingal Road. Volunteers are welcome! If you are interested in learning more about our Days for Girls project please call Rotary DFG Group Leader Dianne Catto on 0408 776 278.
