Menstrual Buddy Project

According to UNICEF, 1 in 10 girls in Africa miss school because of their menstrual cycle each year.

In South Africa, many girls miss 3-5 days of school each month because they cannot afford sanitary pads.

Absenteeism deprives many girls of a quality education and many don’t complete high school. Keeping girls in school is important for their well-being and for the success of the entire company.

How can you help?

For just R60 a month, you can support one girl with sanitary pads to keep her in school.


The Umhlanga Women’s Association is committed to making a difference to those families in need, encouraging regular hamper drives. Should you want to participate in these hamper drive, essential, non-perishable household items are suggested for sponsorship.
