As part of their youth month celebrations Project Dignity and Subz Washable Pants and Pads visited Dalibo Primary School in Tongaat.
The team hosted an educational talk for the schoolgirls, who each received washable, reusable, eco-friendly sanitary pads packs.
“Thanks to Partners for Possibility for sourcing this wonderful school and to Marion Spence for the most welcome donation of Subz self-clipping pads that will last these young girls for five years.
We would also like to thank our amazing Subz ambassador Jo-Ann Barnwell for joining us and inspiring the girls as well,” commented Sue Barnes on behalf of Subz and Project Dignity.
Because of a lack of menstrual sanitation products, many school-going girls in SA miss vital classroom time which negatively affects their educational performance, diminishing future opportunities.
To reduce school absenteeism and improve educational benefits of these young girls, KZN resident, Sue Barnes, developed Subz Pants and Pads, a reusable, eco-friendly sanitary pad that clips onto a 100% cotton panty which lasts three to five years.
Project Dignity, the non-profit extension of the organisation, distributes sponsored Subz packs to girls in schools and communities in rural areas across the country, empowering these teenagers through education and access to sanitary wear.
