The Period Project South Africa NPC (PPSA) with its inception in 2015 has achieved a few successes with the help of many supporters, near and far.
We are very grateful for all the assistance it has received so far. To date we have supplied more than 2000 young women in Grade 12 in particular with a year's supply of sanitary towels so that they are able to attend school without it being interrupted by a PERIOD
The school featured in the photograph is Masibambisane High in Delft. This school received recognition from the Western Cape Education Department for having the best improved pass rate for 2018. They went from having a 48% to 79.1% pass rate. When the school evaluated why there was this big improvement, they realised it was because more young girls were staying in school because of the donations of sanitary towels received from PPSA.
This year PSPA has been invited to use the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon again as a platform to encourage more support. We hope that you will choose this charity to run your Sanlam Cape town Marathon on 15 September 2019.
All funds raised for this event will go towards refurbishing another high school or three with an ablution room where our young women can have some privacy when having to change into a clean uniform in the event of her soiling herself during her menstrual cycle while at school. This is called the Red Door Project and Crystal High in Hanover Park initiated the first one when PPSA started supplying their school with sanitary towels in 2016.
