Dear SUBZ Enthusiast
Thank you so much for your enthusiasm for Project Dignity and for helping our girls to stay in school.
Herewith below information on Project Dignity Trust, the NPO and SUBz.
I also include some ideas on how you can help us but feel free to be as creative as you want to be to
create awareness or raise funds for Project Dignity NPO to support them to buy and distribute SUBz
washable re-usable sanitary pads and pants packs. See what speaks to you and what can work for
your current circumstances.
Project Dignity and SUBz Pads and Pants – helping girls to stay in school
through washable, re-usable sanitary ware
There are 9 000 000 girls in South Africa between the ages of 13 and 18. This is high school and menstruating
age. Their Education is hindered by 25%, as these girls do not go to school whilst they are menstruating. That is
one week every month. That is a massive set back in their high school career. The reason for this is that they do
not have sanitary wear. If there is money in the family it first goes to food not feminine hygiene.
We responsible citizens, need an action plan to educate the future of our country for our grandchildren’s sake.
We can’t make it anyone else’s problem. It is up to us to make the difference.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
By pledging R220 (excluding postage/courier fees), this will supply one school girl 3 pairs of panties
AND 9 clip on washable sanitary pads, which will last for 5 years.
This is the average amount of money a household, with 3 menstruating girls, spends in one month on
feminine hygiene. This can give these girls their deserved high school education.

Help us to make people aware of the girl’s plight and this very sustainable, eco-friendly solution. The
more people know, the more funds we might get to help more girls
Adopt a school
Get your company or school to support an underprivileged school. Each girl can make a donation
towards helping one under privileged girl in a school once a year.
Adopt one grade’s pupils e.g. grade 6 and supply them with SUBz each year. If you supply grade 7girls
with SUBz, you help them for their entire school year.
Encourage your church to supply SUBz to the girls they support as opposed to sanitary packs that only
offers a solution for one month.
Students & Youth
Whether it’s Rag fund raising (Raids, Jailbreaks, Pop-up shops, hitches etc), taking part in challenge
events, campaigning or simply hearing about our work as part of your studies.
Challenge your company to get involved through their CSI programs or staff charity programs to raise
money for Project Dignity
Arrange for a Project Dignity Trust Ambassador to have a talk at your church, school or charity
