WITH Women’s Month around the corner, Lunique Sithole — GagasiFM radio personality and actor — has partnered with Audi Centre Pietermaritzburg in a Sanitary Towels Drive.

The programme aims to provide low income schools with sanitary pads so as to #KeepGirlsInSchool.

“In our days, a lot of young girls, especially in the rural areas, were forced to skip school for the whole week just because they could not afford sanitary pads. No girl should experience that. So let us #keepgirlsinschool!” said Sithole.

“Audi Maritzburg is very excited to be part of this drive and initiative by Lunique and we would like to give back to the disadvantaged communities, since we have had a lot of support from our surrounding communities in Pietermaritzburg. We also want to see more kids in school as they are the leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow,” said Nathi Mncube, Sales Manager, Audi Centre Pietermaritzburg.

For the month of July, Sithole and Audi Centre Pietermaritzburg would like to ask you to help by donating a pack or two towards this cause.

Drop boxes are at Audi Centre Pieter­maritzburg, Pietermaritzburg City Hall, and at 19 Gallwey Lane.

To donate please send an e-mail or or contact 033 397 8800.
