End Period Poverty

Period Poverty is a major problem globally, and has a massive impact on the dignity, education and work productivity of many female South Africans. There are 22 million South African women that have their period every month, 35% of them having to choose between buying food or a sanitary product.

 Although the South African government, on the evidence presented by our Stellenbosch University Law Clinic, moved to make sanitary hygiene products more accessible by removing the 15% value added tax on such products in 2019, there are still many students who simply cannot afford them.

Join us in taking action against this very real issue.

Maandstonde-armoede is wêreldwyd ʼn groot probleem, en het ʼn groot invloed op die waardigheid, opvoeding en werksproduktiwiteit van baie vroulike Suid-Afrikaners. Daar is 22 miljoen Suid-Afrikaanse vroue wat elke maand hulle maandstonde beleef, en 35% van hulle moet kies tussen kos koop en sanitêre produkte koop.

Hoewel die Suid-Afrikaanse regering (op grond van getuienis wat deur die Universiteit Stellenbosch se Regskliniek voorgelê is) sanitêre produkte meer toeganklik probeer maak het deur die 15% belasting op toegevoegde waarde op sodanige produkte in 2019 weg te neem, is daar steeds talle studente wat dit eenvoudig nie kan bekostig nie.

Help ons om hierdie baie werklike kwessie aan te pak.
