You may stroll, walk or run to support the girls and young women who miss school, work and other activities because they cannot afford to purchase menstrual hygiene products. 

Government EFT cards cannot be used to purchase hygiene items, so WIT gives monthly donations of sanitary pads, soap, deodorant, lotion, shampoo and conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, dental floss and socks to menstruating youth in foster care facilities, public housing projects, shelters for runaway girls, homeless shelters, and halfway houses. 

 

You may donate to the cause or register here.

Special thanks to Madelaine Fay Gilchrist of Publications Press for her sweet generosity towards Women In Training! Madelaine has saved WIT a huge percentage off what we previously spent in printing costs for "The WIT Guide to the Menstrual Cycle" that we freely distribute to girls and young women, and other collateral pieces!

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Love 2021

On January 18, 2021, twin 13-year-old sisters, Breanna and Brooke Bennett, are leading the charge to create the "Beloved Community" Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. envisioned. The organization the twins founded, Women in Training, Inc., or WIT, is hosting the 2021 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Love in Montgomery, Alabama, to promote racial healing.

 

"Dr. King said it best: '"Love is the greatest force in the universe. It is the heartbeat of the moral cosmos. He who loves is a participant in the being of God.' That is simple, yet so powerful," Brooke said. 

 

"Love is an action," Bree added. "We will demonstrate our love by giving away ingredients to make Dr. King’s favorite meal, MLK tee-shirts, and  personal hygiene and COVID-19 personal protective items to celebrate the 92nd anniversary of Dr. King’s birth."
