LCSA National Service Project: Project Dignity – SUBZ

There are an estimated 9 million girls in SA who miss up to 3 months of school every year while they menstruate because they don’t have access to or can’t afford sanitary products. The aim of Project Dignity is to reduce absenteeism and drop-out rates in schools and increase opportunities for girls to complete their education.
Project Dignity has developed a pack of washable, re-usable panties and sanitary pads that can last for up to 5 years. LCSA will raise funds and assist in raising awareness for this amazing project.
