thousands of teenage girls
in rural South Africa miss out on
their education due to menstruation
MEET THE GIRLS
There are 9 000 000 girls in South Africa between the ages of 13 and 19.
This is the school going age of menstruating girls. Their Education is hindered by 25%,
as these girls do not go to school whilst they are menstruating as they have no access to sanitary wear.
That is one week every month, which is a massive set back in their school careers.
THERE IS A SOLUTION
A washable sanitary towel that is reusable and doesn’t need discarding.
