Careers Expo Postponement

The Career Expo that was scheduled to be held on the 10th of May has been postponed until further notice. The venue and the timing of the meeting however remains the same and it is just the date that has been postponed.

As there were many public holidays and extra classes to be run in accordance with Langa High School’s Exam timetable, we have decided to postpone the event so that our future leaders can better prepare for that. We appreciate those who have come on board and hope to see more exhibitors and supporters at the later date.

Womandla Sanitary Pad Drive is ON!

Cape Town – Womandla is collecting Sanitary Pads for Langa High School. This drive is intended to keep girls in school during their menstrual cycle.

Seven million school girls in South Africa don’t have access to sanitary pads because they can’t afford them. We as an organization are doing the best to service our community and could do a lot more with your help.

The government has been under pressure to zero-rate sanitary towels after it increased VAT from 14% to 15% in April last year. As of 1 April 2019, sanitary pads have been declared VAT-free in South Africa. This is a small victory for those who can afford them, but what about those who can’t?

Please assist us by collecting sanitary pads within your company, and dropping the donations off at Every Nation N1 City, Solly Smiedt St, Goodwood, Cape Town.

Alternatively, contact us here to collect!
