CITY Hill Nation Changes project visited Khabezela High in Embo to educate the Grade 8 to 10 girls about puberty, menstruation and their future last week.

The project team includes volunteers from CityHill Church who identify and work with schools.

Mooi Mthethwe, a member of CityHill Church, gave a motivational talk on how the girls need to keep focused, stay in school and finish their education.

She said that the girls need to value and love themselves and know that they are special and important and deserving of a successful future.

Sue Barnes from Subz Pants and Pads supplied the project with packs of Subz washable and re-useable sanitary pads and panties. Each girl received a pack as well as an informative talk on puberty and menstruation by Brenda McCann from Subz Pants and Pads.

The packs that the girls received, if looked after correctly, will last five years. This is a huge relief to these young ladies as they no longer have to worry about buying sanitary items each month.

Wendy Houlson from Dimension Data, a sponsor of the project, spoke to the girls about the company and why they chose to work with City Hill Nation Changers on this project.

The project has provided educational and motivational talks and Subz Pants and Pads packs to 300 young ladies. The project is ongoing and is being supported by corporate companies and funders. - Supplied.
