(News of The South)- My birthday is coming up on the 5th of July instead of a gift. Please donate To keep a girl in school by designing reuseable sanitary pads.

One in 10 girls miss school due to menstruation. Menstruation is still a major taboo around Zimbabwe. In Umguza, many womenand girls use old rags, dried leaves, grass, ash, sand or newspapers they do not have access to affordable hygienic safe products and facilties. Sanitary pads or tampons are simply too expensive and out of reach.

We are currently implementing a project in Umguza in Maraposa working with Maraposa and Semukelani Primary School and the wider community that will provide knowledge and skills in Designing and making hygienic reuseable sanitary pads for girls and also educating women and girls about menstruation and hygiene.

To complete this programme we need to hire a Trainer, purchase materials to be able to train 40 women (mothers) and girls to make reuseable sanitary pads for the schools as well as the wider community. The training will be on the 10th of July 2018 in Maraposa.

Help us break the silence around menstruation and sanitation. Instead of a birthday gift – help me to maintain dignity for women and girls.

Ndebele – Omijie is also the founder of an organisation Inspire Women, Men And Children.

If you would like to donate please donate to Inspire Women Men and Children HSBC 404365 60021709 or Eco Cash 00263772743113.
