Thanks YOU!

Hi William, another product that is really needed and wanted, but one I think impossible for us to create/manufacture, is braziers. There are no bras in the area, and as the adolescent girls start to develop, they become the object of unwanted attention, especially in their somewhat see-through white school uniform blouses. Also, dancing is a big part of our culture and without bras, girls become extremely self-conscious about engaging in sport at school, or in our cultural dances. What we have done is to ask for donations of slightly-used or new bras. We have received donations of over 1,000 bras which has been a real boost to the self confidence of the girls who were fortunate to receive them.
