Empowering Girls Worldwide
The North Dakota State Spectrum featured 4TGP Programs Director Molly Secor-Turner and her dedication to serving others in a January, 2016 feature, reprinted in part here. By Kelsey Dirks.
Molly Secor-Turner has spent the majority of her life serving others. The North Dakota State associate professor started service as a teenage girl, looking to make a difference. Her mother introduced her to mission work in hospitals and schools in Kenya, Africa and the rest is history.
When Secor-Turner returned to Kenya in 2012, she asked what were some of the greatest challenges students faced. Her research found that girls couldn’t always go to school when they had their period.
In 2013, Secor-Turner and five of her friends founded the non-profit For the Good Period. For the Good Period works to educate girls on menstruation and provide washable reusable pads.
