HIdeaways' Project Penya Reaches its Goal

Hideaways is absolutely thrilled to announce that their Project Penya has reached its goal of raising enough money for a set of Subz reusable pads and panties for each Grade 6 and 7 girls at Dingani Primary School. This would not have been possible without the generous contributions of the guests at Elephant’s Eye, Hwange and partners of Hideaways.

More than just providing a practical solution to the lack of adequate sanitary supplies in rural Zimbabwe, the long-term goal is to empower these young women to stay in school and work toward a better future. The money raised will also go towards a motivational workshop for the young learners that will take place next year at the beginning of the new school year. Together with a qualified health professional, The Grow Africa Foundation will organise a motivational workshop for the girls, their parents, the teachers and the local clinic staff about puberty, sexual health and well-being, and career choices.

This is not just about providing sanitary pads to school girls, this is about providing education to an entire community and empowering an entire generation of young girls!
