Why we do what we do and why your support is vital on behalf of the young girls who may receive our beautiful, feminine, reusable sanitary packs and the women who we empower to run their own businesses, I’d like to thank you and your team for giving me the opportunity to share my dreams and goals.
Every time you donate to Dignity Dreams, you are helping us to achieve our 3 goals:
- To empower our school girls. They deserve to enter womanhood with confidence and knowledge. We will continue to distribute our beautiful, feminine reusable sanitary towel packs to school girls in South Africa; SADC and Africa. Part of our promise is to disseminate information about Menstrual Health.
- Enabling small business: Currently there are 15 previously disadvantaged and unemployed women who sew Dignity Dreams pads and bags. These women ‘own’ their businesses because we don’t set targets on the units they make, but we undertake to purchase all their stock. Strict quality control measures are in place.
- Caring for our environment: Traditional sanitary towels and tampons are clogging up our landfills and polluting our environment. A cycle normally lasts for 5 days and most girls and women use 5 sanitary towels per day i.e. 5 towels x 5 days = 25 per month. This means that over a 5 year period 1 500 soiled towels will end up in landfills. Dignity Dreams packs will last for 5 years. According to Food & Tress for Africa survey, we only use 17 trees per year.
