There are 7 000 000 girls in South Africa between the ages of 13 and 19. This is the school going age of menstruating girls. Statistics show that 4 000 000 of these girls do not have regular access to sanitary products.
Research has confirmed the negative effects of poor menstrual health management on a girl’s education. The lack of access to sanitary wear and adequate sanitation facilities can affect a girl’s attendance at school by 25% per year. That is one week every month, which is a massive set back in their school careers.
Help us raise R50 000 which will be used to donate sanitary pads to women in need.
