Mosala said there are students who are unable to afford them resulting in their dignity being lowered.

“We figured it is women’s month and thought it is better to celebrate with them. Our target for starters is 400 students,” he said.

He said it is a day time event which will start from noon and proceed till late.

He emphasized that it is a free event, where people are expected to donate as little as M30 towards buying sanitary towels.

Mosala told theReporter this week that the initiative is done in collaboration with one brand of sanitary towels called Dear Bella.

The Dear Bella Company’s goal and mission is to provide access to affordable sanitary pads and to empower girls to become active and productive citizens. It was founded by ‘Matefo Mabel Morakeng in 2018.

The company will be at the event to sell the towels to people who will donate and we will distribute accordingly.

“At this event we encourage women to come in large numbers and be well dressed so as to stand a chance to win prices. There will be speakers in the likes of ‘Mathabang Fanyane who will play a role of motivating both women and those who will donate at the event,” he said.

Mosala also said the event will also be graced by the presence of Puseletso McPherson who is a magistrate at the children’s court. She will deliver a speech to those who donate, sponsors and women in general.

Another speaker called Stillo who comes from Stillo Foundation which is line of business of collecting sanitary towels to offer to the girls.
