Wednesday - Gender - "If everyone could donate sanitary towels then a woman would be happy , wouldn't they?"

Today i also spoke to Olwethu Founder and Coordinator for The Red Wings Project . 

The Red Wings Project is an initiative aimed at highlighting the lack of sanitation and misery of disadvantaged women unable to access adequate sanitary products and care.
“9 million girls aged between 13 and 19 miss a week of school every month for lack of sanitation.”

“The cost of sanitary ware and towels is beyond the reach of most young women and girls, who in Africa are the majority of the unemployed and those living in poverty. Most girls end up not going to school, because they cannot afford to buy sanitary ware.”THIS IS HOW

YOU CAN ASSIST US WITH MAKING SANITARY PADS IN SOUTH AFRICA AVIALABLE TO THE DISADVANTAGED:

Donations of sanitary pads to The Red Wings Project
Women within corporate institutions & companies coming together & contributing as well as donating sanitary pads/towels for collection
Sanitary bins placed in various locations collect sanitary pads/towels  and then be distributed
Register on our sight, receive news and updates of our events
Sign our petition to coerce our government to strike sanitary pads off the 14% VAT list in order for these products to be zero-rated products.
