Our club goal is to raise awareness about Period Poverty through social awareness events and to help provide girls and women in Cambodia have access to safe menstrual hygiene management through fundraising by selling Kampot Peppers from Cambodia. Periods and menstrual equity has been a taboo subject and thus, never really spoken about, even though millions of girls (1 out of 4!) worldwide struggle from period poverty. As a consequence, many don’t realize the serious physical health and mental consequences that come with Period Poverty and unsafe practices. We aim to encourage discussions about this issue so that more people can realize the impact it has on girls.

SOS Lutheran Nursery.
In this SOS on Fridays after school, we teach local K1-3 nursery students simple English through games, songs, dances, and coloring. Each of our sessions is focused on one specific theme, like transportation, food, and school. Even though they might not know any English to begin with, we hope our happiness and positive energy through our lessons carries on to them and that they come out with a love of learning, regardless of what they take away from our sessions.
