Our aim is to promote dignity and combat absenteeism.
- Instilling self-worth and self-love
- Guiding learners through puberty and menstruation
- And by collecting and providing free sanitary care
“We aren’t merely a pad drive, we are a sisterhood programme. On our monthly visit, we host workshops where we discuss topics such as menstruation and puberty, post-matric options, gender and sex, to name a few. We aim to bridge the gap in whatever way we can between ourselves and the school learners we are working with. The schools which we are working with are Langa High School and Mathew Goniwe High School, where we are providing sanitary pads for approximately 1100 young females.”
