To commemorate Menstrual Health Day 2019, MIET AFRICA’s KwaZulu-Natal District Coordinator Nondumiso Mathenjwa distributed 1500 sanitary pads to Ntabeni Primary School (outside Esikhaleni Township, Richards Bay). This contribution is part of UNICEF South Africa and MIET AFRICA’s partnership project on ‘Strengthening school-based systems to improve education outcomes: sexual and reproductive health and rights, and menstrual hygiene management’. The sanitary pads – generously donated to MIET AFRICA by Donghae Diaper, a South Korean-based manufacturer of sanitary pads, tissues and wet wipes – are being distributed to learners through MIET AFRICA’s school-based programmes, in collaboration with the national Department of Basic Education and provincial education departments.

Pictured are learners from Ntabeni Primary School and Nondumiso Mathenjwa.
