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!

Mentorship Programme Activated!

We are so excited to launch our Mentorship Programme this year!

wommmmmm

Last year, we went on a search for passionate and successful women to mentor bright girls in the Langa community of Cape Town. Of the masses that took a keen interest, we decided on 15 ladies in Cape Town who will create and pilot our mentorship programme.

The response from the chosen High School learners and their parents, has been overwhelming! We will expose the young girls to various careers and vocations, assist in subject choice and support them as best as we can on their life journey.

We look forward to actioning our vision and mission which is to equip, inform and empower women in the African diaspora.
