On the 6th of May I had the honour of attending an event in support of the Princess Project, run by the Dunglen Club in my community of Dundee. This is an initiative to collect and distribute sanitary pads to young school going girls that cannot afford it on a monthly bases.
For many of us, buying sanitary pads is as easy as buying bread and milk. But this is not the case for millions of young girls in South Africa. They are permanently disadvantaged as they are forced to stay at home because they are unable to afford this basic necessity. These young girls miss a week of school every month, for lack of sanitary pads.
The Princess Project is a project I fully support and am proud to be a part of, the event I attended on Saturday the 6th of May was a fun event for all the women in the community that have supported the project. I will be joining the Dunglen Club at a later stage to distribute the sanitary pads collected from for the month of May.
I plead with everyone to get involved and support this initiative by purchasing sanitary pads for young girls in your area that cannot afford it.
