Hi I’m Linzi and I’m on a mission to support this worthwhile project....The project is a simple but effective scheme to provide girls with free sanitary protection if they cannot afford, or are too embarrassed, to buy their own. Any school who signs up to this free scheme will receive a red box filled with sanitary items donated by the community to be kept by the School Nurse or other appropriate member of staff. The female pupils of that school can access this box at any time and take from it a prepared paper bag filled with sanitary items - providing them with the reassurance that they will be protected throughout their menstrual cycle. This is a free service to any school who signs up with us and we will never let the box run out.
We will also provide posters to be placed in the girls' toilets informing them of the scheme.
No tearful panics in the loo. No wadded up toilet roll. No missed lessons or staying at home. No anxious embarrassment. We believe that all women should be provided with the assurance that their 'time of the month' is perfectly normal and that the comfort that sanitary protection provides is vital.
A simple scheme, made with love for the young women in our community.
