Panel 2



Ladies’ Circle has from its very beginnings in the 1930s, been a service organization.
We give our time, our commitment and we gather funds for different projects around the world. Our national associations often have national service projects and each local circle might have a cause they feel strongly about and contribute to.
On the international level we select a project biannually that all our members support. Currently we are sponsoring Project Crimson – an initiative creating work opportunities for women while at the same time making sanitary products available in rural parts of India.
Together we can improve the quality of life for thousands of women and work towards breaking the stigma of menstruation.
“About bloody time!”
