THE organisers of “A Young Lady with Heart 2016” are delighted to announce that this year’s campaign will once again be run in association with the Liberty Midlands Mall, with Maritzburg Fever its official media sponsor. The campaign seeks to reward Grade 11 school girls who are making a difference in their schools and communities. Nominations open on 20 July and schools are invited to nominate their Grade 11 girls who embrace the qualities of compassion, kindness, sincerity, loyalty and generosity.

The campaign is now in its fourth year with the title of “A Young Lady with Heart”, currently held by Tara Oldfield of St John’s DSG.

Lara Edmonds from Just Boutique and Ursuhla Govender from Lay-Out Events will administer the campaign.

“The campaign, which runs over Women’s Month, was well received by government and private schools with more than 15 high schools participating in the nomination process last year.

“I was delighted to see how the young ladies from a variety of schools and backgrounds quickly bonded and worked together on an outreach project to collect non-perishables for Mama Ntombis Community Projects. They also visited Eziketheni on Heritage Day,” said Edmonds.

The organisers encourage schools to not only nominate three to five young ladies, but to invite the organisers to personally address their pupils at assembly.

The Pietermaritzburg Community Chest is once again the beneficiary of the campaign and has asked for assistance with a particularly relevant, but sensitive issue, faced by underprivileged adolescent girls - absence from school during their menstrual cycle because they cannot afford sanitary towels.

“Research shows that many underprivileged girls miss between a month to two months of school over the course of a year due to this issue and this naturally has a very negative impact on their academic performance.

“This year our semi-finalists will call on their schools and community to assist them with this particular project,” said Govender.

A campaign of this nature cannot function without the support of business and the following businesses have come on board to offer their services and prizes for the Young Ladies with Heart - Solé Salons and Spa, Marcos Jewellers, Foodpak, Minuteman Press, Artfarts, Theron Media and Elation Productions.

Pietermaritzburg schools, it is time to nominate your young ladies with heart. Your nominations not only put a feather in their cap, but enable them to embark on a journey which has a positive impact on their lives.

Nomination forms can be downloaded from www.justboutique.net and schools can also contact the administrators telephonically and follow the campaign on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
