Our pledge to assist the girl learners in Nkantolo with sanitary towels continued in 2018. During our January 2018, we pledged to assist the best-performing school in the (Mount Zion) district, Marhelane High School. Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Aspen Pharmacare, we managed to add the school to our roster, and we paid a visit to our now four schools to supply them with another 6-month supply of sanitary towels.
As always, our visits were accompanied by a health/puberty talk by the Imbumba Foundation at each school, educating the girls about the changes their bodies would experience – both physically and emotionally. The girls asked a variety of questions and were given tools on how to talk to their loved ones about menstruation. Our partner, Aspen Pharmacare, also shared a few words with the learners.
Our visit to Nkantolo was, as usual, productive and prosperous.
