Run For Her SA 2020

Personal message

The Cora Project (CORA) is raising funds to help combat period poverty in South Africa.

Who we are

CORA is an initiative whose mission is to end period poverty in South Africa by providing women and girls from underprivileged communities resources and education. CORA also seeks to normalise periods and the rhetoric around them.

Period poverty

A devastatingly large amount of girls and women in South Africa experience period poverty, which prevents them from reaching their full potential and acts as a major disadvantage.

An estimated 30% of girls in South Africa miss school when menstruating due to limited or no access to menstrual hygiene products. Period poverty gives girls unequal access to education, taking away their basic human right. 

Menstruation should not be a disadvantage. No women or girl should have to choose between feeding themselves and/or their families or supporting their menstrual hygiene.

How you can make a difference 

We are hosting the Run for Her campaign, which is a virtual run for Women’s Month between 1 August to 31 August.

How it works

Each participant accepts the challenge of running towards combatting #PeriodPoverty and pledges to donate R10 for every 1km they complete.

  1. Register for free here.
  2. Run/walk any time during Women's Month (August).
  3. Donate R10/km.
  4. Share your run on social media by captioning it "#RunForHer in my pursuit to #EndPeriodPoverty.”
  5. Follow and tag @thecoraproject and @runforher
  6. Hashtag #RunForHerSA
  7. Nominate 5 friends 

For every R155 donated one girl will receive a box of 4 SafePads, which is a sustainable, eco-friendly and reusable pad that lasts 5 years. The funds raised will also cover the costs of Menstrual Health workshops to educate girls and their community on all things menstruation and to normalise periods. 

HELP US support the women and girls of South Africa!
