‘Hands On’: Visiting ‘Days for Girls’ Sewing Workshop

Thea Vieira, Head of ‘Days for Girls’ in Denmark

Monday 19 February 2024 at 18:00-21:00

Meeting room: “Tekstilværkstedet”, 3 floor, Frivilligcenter Gentofte, Hellerupvej 24, Hellerup

Light meal, coffee and tea will be served from 17:30 in Hellerup

Thea Vieira and members of Days for Girls København will guide us through the steps of producing the pads.

 

Starting with fabric rolls and the pattern for pads, we will try to add the pattern pieces to the fabric. Next, the fabric parts are cut out and sewn together. The finished pads are ironed and packed together with washing equipment in small bags.

Imagine not being able to go to work or school for several days each month because of menstruation – this is the reality for many women and girls in other parts of the world. DfG pads are helping to solve this problem. DfG pads have so far reached three million women and girls in India, Pakistan, Africa and other places along with menstrual health education (daysforgirls.org).

As the last part of the meeting, we will have news from the Multicultural Board.
