The Red Box Project - In most schools there are a few young women who lack access to sanitary protection. The result? Anxiety, embarrassment, missed lessons, missed education.
This should be a straightforward problem to solve. So here is what we've done.....
We sponsor and stock a red box filled with sanitary towels, tampons and spare pants.
No tearful panics in the loo. No wadded up toilet roll. No sitting awkwardly on one cheek. No anxious embarrassment. No missed lessons or staying home.
This is a simple project and is entirely funded by community kindness, woman to young woman.
Let's be clear. We ❤️ our teachers and support staff and we recognise that they go the extra mile every day. We also think that as communities around our schools, we should step up and do our bit.
Would you like to help?
🔴 donate in kind. Add a packet or two of light to normal flow sanitary towels to your weekly shop. Please message this page for drop off details.
🔴 tell your friends about us and ask them to consider supporting the project.

Keep up the good work. We used to provide sanitary products for the kids in our Resource Centre, bought out of our own pockets. It's practical and a message of care and solidarity.
