Mandela day: Support-a-girl initiative

This year we celebrated 100 years since the birth of our late president Nelson Mandela. Like every year Karoo Catch joined in the Mandela day celebrations.The Karoo Catch focus for Mandela Day was to support girls from under privileged communities with sanitary towels.

A recent study showed that some school girls missed up to 50 days of school per year as a result of not being able to afford sanitary towels.

The Karoo Catch staff and the company got involved by donating sanitary towels for this initiative. The sanitary towels were donated on Mandela day to Thembalesizwe Primary School in Graaff-Reinet.

Karoo Catch was pleased to announce that the total donations for the Mandela Day Drive came up to 183 packs of sanitary towels. The donations were done during a special ceremony held by Thembalesizwe Primary School on Mandela Day.

The school and the pupils were thankful for the donations and said that it will make a difference in the lives of many girls attending their school.
