BIG SISTER PROJECT 2016
Puberty marks the entrance into womanhood and should be a time of celebration. Young girls from disadvantaged backgrounds do not share in the excitement with little to no education on the matter and a lack of sanitary pads at their disposal during this life-changing period. This often results in a drastic decline in school attendance and their education suffers.
The Lion Match Company, Comfitex Pads and Blue Sky Society Trust launched the Big Sister Project on the 22nd of June at Hlengimpilo Primary School in Inanda, KZN in the hopes of igniting an initiative to bring about positive change throughout the province. Our hope is to empower young females by educating them and providing them with the necessary sanitary aids to show them how they can experience normalcy and continue to attend their lessons.
