Johannesburg. 5 May 2023. Close to 600 Grade 6 and 7 girl-learners from three schools based in Alexandra, Johannesburg, received a donation of 2 800 packs of sanitary pads from Tiger Brands, collected during an employee volunteerism drive across the country.

MC Weiler Primary School, Ekukhanyisweni Primary School and Ikage Primary School were selected as recipients of the Tiger Brands sanitary pads collection drive. These schools are also beneficiaries of the Tiger Brands Foundation’s national school breakfast nutrition programme in partnership with the Department of Basic Education’s National School Nutrition Programme.

Girl-learners from the three schools will each receive up to four sanitary pad packs. The schools will also receive additional packs to keep in stock.
