In 2013, two teachers, Allison Karnes of N. Muskegon, Michigan, USA and Ingeborg Roth of Aalesund, Norway, teamed up to create WRAPS; a sanitary pad for the schoolgirls of Ethiopia. During the school year, they travel to the real middle schools and meet with 5-8th-grade girls teaching them about menstruation, feminine hygiene and how to take care of their new WRAPS.
WRAPS are Washable, Reusable, Affordable sanitary Pads.
WRAPS are made of 100% cotton cloth. Each school kit contains 6 pads, a new pair of panties, along with one small waterproof purse for the girls to carry their WRAPS to and from school.
Your contribution CAN make a life-changing difference!
100% of your tax deductible gift will be used for WRAPS.
WRAPS is a EFCA approved, 501(c)(3) ministry.
Rapunzel's Boutique is committed to supporting WRAPS by making a $5 donation for every $100 sale at our shop. Your purchases are helping to educate and inspire young girls to stay in school!
We have the power to affect change and help! I encourage everyone to 'take the challenge' and make a donation. Share our blog on your Facebook page through the link at the bottom and ask your friends to join us too!
The Wolaitta Village project goals are to create sustainable businesses within the Wolaitta Community that will generate income for their children’s homes. Our dream is to offer free WRAPS kits to every middle school girl within the Wolaitta Zone of approximately 3 million people.
WRAPS utilizes a four-prong approach to help eliminate the inherent disadvantages that women face in Ethiopia.

On January 9th, I flew out of the brisk, winter of Frankenmuth with Rapunzel's Supervisor, Sandy Marks, to the warm, sunny weather in Atlanta, Georgia. Each year we feel especially fortunate for a mid-winter break to shop at the fabulous AmericaMart®, Atlanta's International Gift & Home Furnishings Market®, January 9 — 16.
We shop from morning until night in the hustle and bustle of exciting energy that surrounds this market. Sandy keeps us track as we make make selections for all of our departments at Rapunzel's. Of course, we can't wait to share our great finds with you!
