The 5|28 Circle > Become a Foot Forward Monthly Donor!
Since 2015, the Foot Forward Fund has been working in East Africa to advance opportunities for women and girls. In 2017, we launched UhuruPads, which employs local women to make 100% compostable sanitary pads which are provided - along with health and hygiene education and new undergarments - to help girls attend school with confidence and dignity.
We're pretty obsessed with all things "monthly" our 5|28 Circle is a special designation we provide to donors who choose to support us monthly.
- The 5 represents the typical days of the menstrual flow
- The 28 represents the typical length of the cycle in total
Our logo as shown below is an adaptation of the menstrual cycle empowerment bracelets we provide the girls we serve - they allow the girls to track their cycle and better understand its phases. You'll receive a kit to make your own bracelets upon joining - and on your 5|28 anniversary each year!
As a 5|28 Circle member, you'll also receive regular updates on our progress and promise, messages from members of our team in Tanzania, and the grateful thanks of the tens of thousands of women and girls you are helping to serve in East Africa!
