Caring4Girls is a sanitary towels distribution programme to keep young girls in school during their monthly cycles. The programmes focuses on creating awareness on puberty and adolescent and in the process demystify all menstrual related myths. The programme was started in 2012 after Richard Mabaso (concept innovator) overheard a fearful conversation between his mom and niece about menstruation which to this day is deemed taboo by many societies. It focuses on the following areas: - education and training on: puberty and menstrual hygiene management, handling, usage and disposal of sanitary towels in poor and rural schools or communities. Research has revealed that most poor girls may miss up to 50 days of schooling annually due to the lack of access to adequate sanitary protection. It is against these shocking statistics that Imbumba Foundation established Caring4Girls to achieve the following: Reach and support as many poor girls as possible with sanitary towels. Create menstrual hygiene awareness through education and training. Establish Caring4Girls Advocacy Groups in schools. Reduce high number of school absenteeism and drop-outs occurrences caused by menstrual related challenges. Holistic development and empowerment of both girls and boys through our Vision 2020 Leadership Programme.Fundraise for this Charity
