North Ogden Jr High and Janet Weavers FACS classes have an on going service project. The students and the community helped in making kits. They have made bags, shields and liners for the Days for Girls organization. These kits are to help girls in 3rd world countries have "more Days in school" as many of them can not afford or have access to disposable feminine hygiene items to take care of their monthly cycle and are not able to attend school during that time otherwise. Last summer these kits (230) were delivered to Thailand. They were delivered to 2 schools in Chang Rai. 
 
On a side note I have never felt so good about being a teacher. In Thailand everyone has a very high respect for teachers, They are looked up to more than even doctors or lawyers or honestly any job. The reactions I got from people when they found out I was a "teacher" was overwhelming.
