Sanitary wear Relief

Every year we distribute sanitary wear to needful communities.

We bring communities together, involving fathers, uncles and male caregivers to break down the stigma around menstruation so that they too can provide sanitary wear to their girls.

Below are links to a couple of fundraisers we have initiated with the latter still currently active:

#letgetpaddedup2018

#letgetpaddedup2022

 

SGV is aimed firstly at physical relief by providing free sanitary pads (disposable and reusable) to adolescent girls. Our first rollout took place in the village of Mbizingwe in Esigodini, Zimbabwe on 11 August 2015. We managed to assist 47 girls. The girls were provided with 4 packs of 10 disposable pads each and a bag of three reusable pads that come with underwear that the pads can be pinned down onto with the studs.

 

The pads are manufactured by Subz Pads, which is based in Kwa-Zulu Natal. Since then, with the now-established support of the Geddes Foundation in Cyprus. We are currently giving continuous support of sanitaryware to 72 girls. The pads are distributed bi-annually to our continued beneficiaries, or ‘Saved Girls’. However, we managed to distribute pads to 250 girls in the Esigodini area and peri-urban Harare between August 2015 and September 2016 as a result of gracious donations in kind.

Life Mentorship

SGCM's mentorship program opens up parent-to-child communication and provides guidance and counselling to the girls to ensure their academic success in school.

 

It aims at addressing challenges across different spheres (e.g.: domestic, school, and community life). It engages the parents and works to curb the son preference in households where there are limited resources.

 

In 2016, girls were given hygiene hampers including buckets for bathing, soap, deodorant and candles for them to see with whilst doing their homework after sunset.

Academic Sponsorship

This is a kind of ‘adopt-a-girl’ initiative. It supports needful girls at risk of dropping out of school without financial intervention. It sponsors girls with school-related expenses.

 

Supporting 6 girls at present with uniforms and school fees; will be increasing to support 11 by year-end. Recently the girls are also being sponsored with bicycles to ease the fatiguing 10km to Nsezi Secondary which is the nearest school, and the school at which the majority of the Saved Girls are pursuing their education.

#LetsGetPaddedUp Fundraising

Each year at SGCM, we have an annual #LetsGetPaddedUp sanitary wear drive. We not only look to raise money for the purchase of the girls’ sanitary wear but we look to engage and educate the community on menstrual hygiene awareness.

Our inaugural campaign took place in 2016. The 2018 campaign raised over US$2,500 which was used to ship a one-ton donation of reusable pads from Brisbane, Australia to Zimbabwe.

Let's openly talk about menstruation and close all the gender gaps created by poor menstrual hygiene management.
