The Dignified Girl Project volunteers and Hologic team members packed 75 care packages for girls in Nassau

NASSAU, Bahamas — The Dignified Girl Project, a local civic organization, recently partnered with Hologic, a U.S.-based medical technology company, to improve the quality of life for girls in Nassau. The companies donated 75 care packages consisting of feminine hygiene products, dental hygiene products, underwear and deodorant. Hologic also made an $800 donation towards future care packages.

The Dignified Girl Project started in 2017 to give girls between six years old and seventeen years old a sense of dignity and empowerment by providing feminine care packages. To date, more than 325 care packages have been distributed with the help of other civic groups including The Bahamas Crisis Center, The Bahamas AIDS Foundation, The Art of Etiquette,  S.T.R.A.W. Inc. and F.O.A.M. Bahamas.

“Many young women around the world are not able to go to school consistently or participate in their community because they lack essentials, especially feminine hygiene products. With a little effort, we can change the lives of girls who are experiencing this in The Bahamas,” said Phillipa Dean, founder of the Dignified Girl Project. “Let’s show them that we care and empower them to be the best people they can be.”
