Your Smalls Appeal was set up in January 2016 as an initiative to help and empower girls in The Gambia. The aim of the initiative is to support young girls and women in developing countries like The Gambia.
The initiative works through recycling an important item of clothing we take for granted, something is thrown away once it is out of fashion or no longer feels comfortable. A vital and essential item used by girls and women everywhere -The Bra! The Your Smalls Appeal receives all styles of bras and sports bras, then sends them to those in need. We were shocked that there are still women in the world who do not have access to this basic item of clothing. Since its initial launch, they now receive regular donations from ladies connected to local business networking groups and generous ladies who have heard about the appeal through various social media platforms and of course the girls and mums at various schools and colleges.
Plastfree is committed in contributing towards ending period poverty in UK & worldwide. “I am extremely happy to be partnering with Diana, founder of Your Smalls Appeal, and it’s amazing the kind of dedication she has shown to contribute towards the problem faced by the deprived community. I hope the Plastfree pads will help the girls in Gambia continue education and normal life when menstruating. We also share two common interests, we both are Rotarians and we both have studied in University of Arts London, and that’s what got us chatting away the first time we met, says Anushka, Co-Founder of Plastfree.
