African Sisterhood

african sisterhood    Long term patient of our office, Jessica Ridgeway, has traveled to various parts of Africa with her parents performing missionary work. At age 17, she founded African Sisterhood. It’s a non-profit organization with the goal of empowering Kenyan girls by filling the demand for feminine hygiene products in rural Kenya. Girls in Kenya miss one week of school every month due to a lack of hygiene products.

African Sisterhood assembles feminine hygiene pads constructed from 100% cotton flannel and 100% cotton woven fabric. Pads are easily washable and each pad can last approximately three years. Plans are to train young women in Kenya to assemble the pads themselves, with fabric and material donated.

Stitched at the Heart is an upcoming documentary all about the evolution of African Sisterhood and will debut later this year at the Art Theatre of Long Beach. 

It has been a privilege learning more about this amazing organization and being the Ridgeway Family chiropractor.
