Nkantolo Education Project

    About This Project

    The Foundation has adopted four schools in Nkantolo, the birthplace of Oliver Tambo, whose girl learners we supply with sanitary towels. Sadly, as with many areas of South Africa, this area is still severely impoverished, and many girls miss school every month, during their menstruation cycles, due to the inaccessibility and unaffordability of sanitary towels. Biannually, the Foundation distributes a 6-month supply of sanitary towels and a booklet on puberty to 1400 girls. With every visit, a health and hygiene talk is provided where the girls are encouraged to raise concerns and ask questions about their changing bodies.
