Gladys has been trained by Days for Girls to sew their washable hygiene products and manages the Grace Community Center's (GCC) registered DfG sewing enterprise. She is kept busy attending workshops and training local women to sew the much needed pads.
In 2020, the GCC sewing enterprise created 2,000 masks for community members and 540 kits for school girls. They hope to sew even more kits in 2021.

The hen house is completed and filled with hens (and one rooster)! The hens lay 20 eggs a day, which are sold at the market stall.
The hen farm produced 5,000 eggs in 2020. The eggs provided crucial nutrients for at-risk families during the 2020 lockdowns.

No more back-breaking work, the Grace Community Center has purchased an electric industrial mixer!
The GCC team mixed and distributed 1,000 liters of liquid soap in 2020 (without an electric mixer!). Help D4G fund ingredients for even more disease-fighting soap in 2021, especially as COVID-19 continues to spread.
