Project Dignity

Ingrid Edelson, from Rotary Anns, and Mara and Jan Manders.

The Helderberg Rotary Anns’ Project Dignity keeps young girls in school during their menstruation, by supplying them with a pack of  “SUBZ” (two panties and six reusable absorbent, washable clip-on pads), which last up to five years. The cost per pack is R200, and through a contact of a Rotarian from Holland, Jan Manders and his wife Maria, they have managed to raise a total of  R15 500 from their Innerwheel Club, their own family and Jan’s golf competition.
