A big thank you from founders

Brooke and Breanna

Donations from organizations, like Period, and dedicated individuals, like you, allowed WIT to allocate

$12,695 to WITKITS!

WITKITS is the Women in Training

signature program to directly provide necessary hygiene supplies each month to hundreds of young people struggling with period poverty.

Our WITKITS filled with sanitary supplies, encouraging bracelets, and informative pamphlets, are all packed into a sturdy canvas bag.  WIT volunteers distribute them monthly to young people throughout our community.  

Having followed WIT and the Bennett twins’ extraordinary activities on social media, I was moved to donate. Also, period poverty was unknown to me; however, God commands us to help those among us! 

Beverly Davison-Hill

There simply wasn't a better way to spend Good Friday than making Melba Masks -- and spreading love  to young girls and children in need. Breanna and Brooke touched my heart. Thank you, Adeyela, for raising such outstanding children.

Melba Richardson

Robin D. Mackey

How can I help your girls further their mission?

Ms. Mackey was at our doorstep the following week with a box full of handmade masks, packs of sanitary pads, and bottles of Dove unscented body wash. It's natural for close friends and family members to support your cause. When a complete stranger lends a helping hand; however, it touches a special place in your heart.

"You have founded a good organization. Giving feedback about your accounting practices is my way of helping it be all it can be."   

Annamarie W. Jones, CPA

You, too, can be a part of WIT and receive a gift! Donate $25 at  https://www.womenintraining.org/shop and receive a set of 10 notecards and envelopes hand designed by Emily A. Parrish.
