The Dignified Girl Project was founded in 2017 after its founder encountered an unemployed, single mother. The single mom wept because she was unable to regularly provide her teen daughter’s basic hygiene needs. A heart filled with empathy, our founder knew that she had to make a difference in this mother’s life and the lives of other mothers and daughters with a similar plight. After all, she and her mother knew firsthand what this was like.
“Hi, I’m swallowing my pride and asking for pads and tampons for my daughter please. I saw your post on undergarments, may we get some? I haven't been able to purchase any in a while.”
To ensure that every child and adolescent female has access to essential hygiene products, and education to be empowered to make informed decisions regarding their social, psychological, biological, and economic wellbeing, and in turn make meaningful contributions to society.
Since our inception we have

“We’re proud to have been a part of this amazing initiative. It’s definitely a worthy cause for an issue that affects young girls globally. We’re committed to making a difference alongside organizations doing the same.”
“We must remember that one determined person can make a significant difference, and that a small group of determined people can change the course of history.”
