Helen Griffin

Recipient of Margarette Golding Award                           

Helen has worked tirelessly to establish and support Days for Girls in New Zealand, the first chapter to be established outside the USA. All of her work which averages 20+ hours per week is voluntary.

She obtains the materials then prepares and distributes them to teams who sew and complete the kits then return them to her for distribution world-wide and within New Zealand. The re-usable product lasts about three years.

In Helen’s words, ‘Who would have thought that you could sit at your sewing machine for a couple of hours and have a three year impact on a woman’s life’.
