Good Morning Angels: Mandela 100 Sanitary Towel Drive

It is in our hands. R67 can help a girl stay in school for the rest of the year.

Mandela 100 Breakfast

One in three school girls in South Africa stay home for up to four days a month, because they cannot afford sanitary towels.

This impacts severely on their dignity, but also their ability to successfully finish their basic education, which in turn feeds the cycle of poverty they were born into.

It is unthinkable that something as basic as access to sanitary towels can still have such a devastating impact on the future of thousands of South African girls - but it does. 

We invite you to help us break this cycle of poverty, by participating in our Mandela 100 Project: Keep a girl child in school for 6 months - donate R67.

On 18 July 2018, former president Nelson Mandela would have been 100 years old. 

International Mandela Day is all about celebrating the birth of this world peace icon and father of democracy in South Africa, giving us the opportunity to keep the Madiba legacy alive.

To mark this very special day, we will be answering Madiba’s call to take the future in our hands by being of service to those who need it most. He asked us to do 67 minutes of community service - one minute to represent every year Madiba himself was in service to the people of South Africa.

With your help, we want to assist school girls in poor communities.


By donating R67,00 you can fund the sanitary towel needs of one school girl, for six months.

We will make sure that your donation gets to its intended recipient.

We have partnered with Mimi Women and Mimi Pads, an upliftment project for women, to supply and help us distribute sanitary towels to school girls in need of assistance.

In this way, we contribute to job creation for women and education with dignity for school girls.

 One of the schools that will benefit from the Jacaranda FM #Mandela100 Project, is Mandlesive Secondary School, 20 km outside Mbombela in Mpumalanga. This is a no-fee school, which means that families cannot afford to contribute towards school fees due to abject poverty. Many of the 1,300 children (636 girls) in this school are from child-headed families: they look after their siblings or are cared for by siblings.
