Education is the most effective means of improving the lives of girls in the world’s poorest communities. However, girls often drop out of school when they reach puberty because they have no access to menstrual hygiene products. This is a worrisome trend that can lead to early marriage, childbearing at an early age, and a lack of financial independence.
The MoonCatcher Project makes and provides free reusable, washable menstrual-pad kits or “MoonCatcher Kits
” (that can be worn without underwear) for girls in the poorest communities worldwide. These pads provide a way for girls to stay in school while menstruating, giving them a greater chance of completing their education.
All the materials for the project are donated. Join us for this important and empowering project to help girls stay in school.

What do Tikkun Olam Volunteers (TOV) do?
TOV help with a variety of social actions projects (both Jewish and secular) here in Northeastern New York. Many projects allow you to be a part of the great work of Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York and its partner agencies. TOV was created as a way for women looking to become more involved in the community and actively participate in affecting change.
