As part of their Youth Month celebrations, Project Dignity and Subz Washable Pants and Pads visited Dalibo Primary School in Tongaat, recently.
The excited team hosted an educational talk for the girls and the schoolgirls each received washable, reusable, eco-friendly sanitary pads packs.
“Thanks to Partners for Possibility for sourcing this wonderful school and to Marion Spence from Rotary for the most welcome donation of Subz self-clipping pads that will last these young girls for five,” said Sue Barnes on behalf of Subz and Project Dignity.
She would also like to thank her amazing Subz ambassador ,Jo-Ann Barnwell for joining and inspiring the girls as well.
About Subz Pants and Pads:
Because of a lack of menstrual sanitation products, schoolgoing girls 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, KwaZulu-Natal resident, Sue Barnes, developed Subz Pants and Pads, a reusable, eco-friendly sanitary pad that clips onto a 100 percent 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.
