This month saw the start of the Project Dignity sanitary towel handouts. Project Dignity, undertaken in partnership and funded by EsiDulini Trust, provides washable sanitary towels to adolescent girls to help them stay in school. The project will reach 4088 girls from grade 6 to grade 12.
September was Arbour Month and we handed out and planted many indigenous trees at neighbouring schools and dropping centres.
Kurhula High School
Kurhula High School, in Huntington Village, have been fundraising for a school magazine. This would make them the first government school in the district to have a magazine. Dischem offered to print the magazine for them. The teachers and staff were also so proud of their magazine when they received it.
Vodacom donated packs to three schools. Christmas came early to these children. The pack included a backpack, sunscreen, hat and earphones. The look on the children’s faces was spectacular.
Disposable Sanitary Towels
Dischem foundation donated 4000 packs of disposable sanitary towels. These were handed out to 800 grade 6 and 7 girls together with 3 pairs of panties. You can’t believe the difference something so small can make to these girls.
