CURRENT PROJECTS & DRIVES
It's that time of year again and we have started our Easter drives
We would love to give our families some Easter cheer.
We have currently have two drives
1. Our Easter Egg drive, which is to give each family 1 large box of marshmallow Easter Eggs, these are a well-received luxurious treat for our families. It’s a blessing to witness what joy a simple box of treats can bring.
Please consider donating a box (Community Hours will apply)
2. Our Lent Calendar
We would love it if our supporters could use these 40 days as time to reflect on the simple blessings we have, and what we could do without and pass forward to those that are not as fortunate
To put aside just one thing a day for the 40 days of Lent.
A tin of beans, a box of tea of even a bar of soap, simple thing that we take for granted that will be so gratefully appreciated by our families
PALESA PADS DRIVE
Many girls in Africa miss 3-5 days of school each month because they cannot afford sanitary pads.
Most girls eventually end up dropping out of school altogether.
Palesa Reusable Pads can be used for up to 5 years, for less than 20% of the cost of disposable pads.
For many families, basic survival is a priority and there simply isn't enough money in the budget to buy pads every month.
Reusable Sanitary Pads by Palesa Pads™ provide a sustainable solution for up to 5 years which is a girl's high school career. Palesa Pads can, of course, be worn by women as well.
The tremendous savings on sanitary products contribute to the financial well-being of their families.
Palesa Pads are also better for the environment in that they do not contribute to landfill as is the case with disposable pads. The pads are simply washed and reused each month.
