Two local schools benefitted from a sanitary towels giveaway by CEET organisation on Friday.
Mafemane Primary School at Ga Manoke, and Mecklenburg’s Moroke Primary school received an avalanche of sanitary towels from former Miss Limpopo Sheila Mmutle who partnered with local organisations CEET UNLTD and Friends of CEET (FOCC).
Speaking to the Sekhukhune Times after the handover, Mmutle said they wished to change the lives of locals for the better.
“The lack of provision and accessibility of sanitary towels can result in many missing out on schools. Most teenagers struggle to buy the female hygiene product that is the reason we chose to assist.
“We ensured the sanitary towels will be enough for the girl children at both schools. This will last them for the whole of the 2021 calendar year.”
On the day, the Good Samaritans not only donated the sanitary pads, the kids also received deodorants as well as toothpastes and bathing soaps.
“We also guided them and advised them on proper career choices and on making best decisions in life,” added Mmutle.
The management at both schools thanked the Good Samaritans for choosing their schools for the handover.
