THE DIS-CHEM FOUNDATION AND KFM 94.5, SHOWING RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS
Did you know that girls, between the ages of 12 and 18, can lose up to a fifth of their high school education? And this is why: when menstruating, girls cannot attend school because they simply cannot afford feminine hygiene products.
That’s why this month Kfm 94.5 together with Dis-Chem Foundation’s Million Comforts, in partnership with Caring4Girls, will be donating pads to a school in a rural and underprivileged area in Cape Town. They will also give puberty and menstrual hygiene training, as well as educate the learners and debunk social taboos around menstruation.
Tune in to Kfm 94.5 to find out which school we will be assisting.
