PROJECT Dignity has signed a partnership agreement with Wise Economy Global Association, a Swedish NPO.
Wise Economy’s campaign, My Period is Awesome, has been set up with the aim of offering boys and girls educational programmes about puberty and their body.

The partnership with Project Dignity will not only offer a comprehensive educational programme, it will also offer the Subz Pants and Pad sanitary packs to girls.
These packs will last a girl between three to five years and ensure that every girl has the right to an education.

The MPIA partnership will initially be for one year where they want to reach 500 girls with Subz Packs and education and 100 boys with education and interventions by Sonke Gender.

Carin Lann, CEO of Wise Economy Global Association, Sweden, was recently in Cape Town to finalise the agreement.
She said that Wise Economy is proud to be partnering with Project Dignity in this very important global work.

Sue Barnes, founder of Project Dignity said: “The collaboration between Project Dignity and our Sweden partner, MPIA, is an amazing beginning for upliftment and education of the schoolgirls of South Africa.”

This partnership has been in the making for the past eight months and the MPIA campaign will start early in 2017. Look out for the MPIA bracelets to buy and help support this very worthwhile campaign.
