OLD MUTUAL FOUNDATION SUPPORTS THE MILLION COMFORTS CAMPAIGN TO EMPOWER GIRL LEARNERS

By Imbumba Foundation Time of article published Jul 23, 2021

In July, Old Mutual Foundation
teamed up with the Imbumba
Foundation, Dis-Chem Foundation, and
Dis-Chem Pharmacies to support the
annual #MillionComforts campaign. Now
in its seventh year, the campaign collects
around 10 million sanitary pads from Dis-Chem customers to donate to girl
learners and ensure they don’t miss
school during their monthly periods.
Research by Imbumba has found that
teenage girls living in poverty can lose up
to a fifth of their high school education
because they do not have access to
feminine hygiene products.
The Old Mutual Foundation’s call to
action to employees this year was to
collect 480 000 sanitary pads to reach a
target of 15 000 girls in South Africa,
Botswana and Namibia as part of
Mandela Day 2021. Old Mutual
employees were encouraged to visit
their nearest Dis-Chem pharmacy to buy
at least one packet of sanitary pads and
donate in-store.

Aerin Cohen is a student at King David
Victory Park and had dreamt of summiting
Mount Kilimanjaro before writing her final
matric exams this year, 2021.
However, due to the Covid19 pandemic, the
Trek4Mandela Expedition in 2020 had to be
postponed. This did not dishearten her but it
rather prompted her to look back and think
about why she wants to summit.
On the 28th of April, the King David Victory Park
school hosted a virtual event called
“FEMPOWER” which gives women a voice with
the aim of empowering, inspiring and, giving
students an opportunity to listen and learn.
