MIET AFRICA’s CEO Beverley Dyason received a generous donation of 200 000 sanitary pads from South Korean-based manufacturer of sanitary pads, tissues and wet wipes, Donghae Diaper at the Korea Consumer Goods Showcase awards held recently in Cape Town.
The sanitary pads will be distributed to learners through our school-based programmes, in collaboration with the national Department of Basic Education and Provincial Education Departments. Poor access to sanitary pads causes ongoing monthly absenteeism amongst many female learners, with a negative impact on their academic performance and their dignity. The donation contributes to the enabling conditions for these young women to stay in school and reach their full potential. MIET AFRICA is grateful to Donghae Diaper for sharing its vision of a world where all children and youth have access to quality education and development opportunities.
