FEMALE staff from the Department of Correctional Services at the Ebongweni Correctional Centre donated sanitary towels to girls at Westlands Primary as part of celebrating Women’s Month on Wednesday.

Zintle Manyathi, from the department, said the idea of donating sanitary towels to young girls is to keep them in school. She said the department is targeting rural schools and promised to spread the campaign to other schools. She said the men also donated towards the initiative.

Ntombizandile Goqweni, a life skills teacher at Westlands thanked the department for the donation.
“This sanitary wear will help many pupils because some of them come from poor families.” - Supplied.
