Personal message

In a country where young girls and women already face such harsh realities from the lack of opportunity, access to infrastructure and support, the Covid19 pandemic has placed them at a greater disadvantage. Period poverty limits the ability of young women to access schooling and work opportunities. It also poses a serious health risk. The delivery of sanitary pads to girls in underprivileged areas has proven to be an eye-opening endeavour.

This campaign not only aims to challenge period poverty by providing sanitary pads to these young women in our youth clubs and communities we work in but to also raise awareness and educate both females and males, about menstruation, including possible risks, sexual activity and the importance of hygiene and safety. Creating awareness by means of educating males and females forms part of a process to instill a sense of responsibility to safeguard themselves and their partners against poor sanitation, as well as education for young women on how to go about maintaining better care for themselves.

Funds raised will be used for the purchasing of sanitary pads for 500 young women.
