38% of the school aged girls in Cape Town, South Africa do not attend school while their period occurs or drop out completely when their first period arrives due to lack of hygienic products.
The mission: to provide girls in Cape Town, South Africa with sustainable period products to help them have a more normalized-waste free period to allow them to remain in school.
Introducing: Sister Scrunchies
Sister Scrunchies provides a box of reusable pads, reusable period underwear, and a Scrunchie to Cape Town.
Verleste, a dear friend, is working with her women’s group through their church to educate the girls on how to properly care for the products. With the correct care, each product can last 2-3 years!
The Period Company will forever be working with us to provide the period products as part of their mission program.
