It’s Thursday, Feb. 6. Upstairs in one of the rooms in the library building, a group of between 20 and 30 teenage girls are hard at work making feminine hygiene kits that will be sent to the Republic of Malawi, in Africa. Divided into groups, some of them cut bolts of cloth from patterns to make colorful tote bags or undergarments. Others sew together the assorted pieces cut from the patterns. Another group assembles the kits that will go into the totes.
The girls, from the POPS organization (Professional Opportunities Program for Students), were participating in a joint project with the Delta Sigma Theta sorority. It was a first time for the two organizations and came about through the suggestion of Doretha Brooks.
