Gambia Sewing Event

Twenty-five school girls in West Africa will each receive a sanitary product set made by pupils at Clifton High School. With the help of Dr Caddy, Mrs Warwood-Smith and Mrs Rosser, a team of Year 10-13 pupils have sewn reusable sanitary protection made of cotton, towelling and waterproof material. These liberating gifts are highly important as, without them, girls must often miss school and sometimes do not continue in education at all. The group of Year 13 students visiting the Gambia to support The Three Musketeers Children’s Fund in February will educate the girls in how to use them. We are very proud of, and thankful to, all those who have volunteered for this project, as it will undoubtedly change the life of women and girls, and their communities, in areas much less fortunate than ours.
