Project GEM Malawi – Collaborating Globally
After months of our community gathering to sew menstrual kits for young girls and women in need, we travel to Malawi, to work with GEM, a Malawi based girls empowerment organization, and together, run workshops on sewing and care for menstrual kits, paired with reproductive healthcare education. This has been an ongoing, love filled, successful relationship.
Therapeutic ReWilding Workshop – A nature & wellness experience
Join Tessa Magill, LMFT and Cheney Caldwell, Wilderness Enthusiast, for this very special weekly therapeutic nature program made available in collaboration with Ojai Valley Youth Foundation – open to junior high school girls in Ventura County.

The Wilderness and Wellness Immersion Experiences
Join Katie Mundle and her team of wilderness women for a week long wilderness immersion program open to junior high and high school girls in Ventura County who have completed The Girls Empowerment Workshop.
Email Katie at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our team will then be traveling to Malawi, to deliver these kits, where girls miss up to a week of school every month because they are unequipped to care for their periods. Along with the kits, Diane is bringing a sewing machine that has been donated to GEM, which will be used to teach Yamiko and her girls how to sew their own menstrual kits and in turn have an endless supply, keeping girls in school, and off to a bright future, and a better world.
