Hygiene for Homeless, a project to support women that cannot afford sanitary products, has been announced the finalist for the Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards for Wellington City and the Porirua region. Lily Marsh from Samuel Marsden Collegiate Karori and Katie Daly from Marsden Whitby launched Hygiene for Homeless in late 2015. Together they set up a non-profit organisation that funds, organises and distributes hygiene packs for women in need from the Wellington region. “We met up with Change to Green who supply ecofriendly tampons and more. They were excited about our ideas and decided to partner up with us.” The Year 13 students raised over

$2,500 with raffles, a waterfront walk and their givealittle page last year and soon after put together little packs with pads, tampons, soap, underwear, toothbrushes, deodorant and other hygiene products to give them to the Wellington City Mission and the Free Store Wellington. This year Lily and Katie have given 2,500 tampons to the Wellington Women’s Boarding House. Lily said meeting the women at the boarding house was a positive experience and that they were grateful for their donation. “Women don’t have a choice; they need certain sanitary products. That’s why tampons shouldn’t be taxed,” Lily said. Lily said the project had taught her a lot about working with a wide variety of people that she wouldn’t normally meet on a day-today basis. The students are being supported

by their friends Gabby and Lauren Embury, as well as their families. They are looking into expanding Hygiene for Homeless in the future and becoming more involved in the greater Wellington region. “I was so surprised when I heard we were one of the finalists for the awards – Katie hadn’t told me that she had nominated us,” Lily said. “It made me realise that what we’re doing is not just a project for fun but something that’s actually needed.” The Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards for Wellington City will be announced on August 10 and for Porirua region on July 26.
