The Days for Girls Enterprise we established in Toliara is now able to sell online via the main Days for Girls website: Kit Request Form
 
This means that overseas visitors to Madagascar can buy kits in advance ready to distribute to local women and girls, and local people can order directly in ariary.
 
We are one of very few micro-enterprises to reach this stage!  Only 4 out of 167 so far!  Thanks be to God for enabling us to achieve this so quickly!
