We love it when our celebrities do good. Manaka Ranaka, famous for her role on Generations – The Legacy started a campaign to keep young girls in school during their monthly cycle. Find out how.
Young girls around the country are faced with the dilemma of missing approximately five days of school every month during their menstrual period. This in total amounts to a schocking 60 days a year. These young girls are unable to afford sanitary towels and unfortunately this puts them at a disadvantage of accessing their basic right which is the right to basic education as stated in the constitution.
Numerous celebrities have started campaigns in support of this worthy cause, and the recent one being#LetsKeepAGIRLchildAtSchool started by Manaka Ranaka is gaining momentum as more people are getting involved. How it works is Manaka sells kisses, literally, to whoever wants to buy and in return they pay R10, which will proceed towards buying sanitary towels for these young girls.
Celebrities who have taken part in this astounding cause are actor Rapulana Seiphemo and Brenda Mhlongo, who’s a singer and and actress on Generations – The Legacy. Manaka has posted numerous pictures on Instagram of people supporting this cause.
