Mandela Day to National Women’s Day

ReThRo and the DA Women’s Network, DAWN, together started a project for Mandela Day. The project was aimed at keeping girls in school every day every month. The community was asked for sanitary ware donations, like pads. Cardboard boxes, decorated by the children of one of the local pre-primary schools, Pophuis, were placed in the local clinic, library and at Medipark  for donations. The project ran until National Women’s Day.

Councillor Casper McDonald and Ms Hetta Scholtz handed over some of the sanitary ware to Dr Gerhard Maré on Thursday, 8 November for the girls at Uitsig High School.
