THE STORY:

I traveled to South Africa the summer of 2015 as an educational experience where I focused on education and social reform. What I faced was an emotional connection with an organization that started on the ground level with people from townships empowered to support their communities. Keep A South African Girl in School Campaign resonates with me because over 70% of black South Africans have no high school education and girls lose about 30 days a year of schooling due to lack of sanitary products during their menstrual cycle. In America I am so privileged if there was ever a day I needed a sanitary napkin I could get it from the nurse's office. When education is valued but challenged by needs that aren't met, that breaks my heart. The US Dollar is 14 times the South African Rand. With $3,000 we would be able to provide 1,000 girls with sanitary products for the year. I see this opportunity as only the beginning to something greater and more sustainable, but I decided to start this journey on Crowdrise and with your help the sky is no limit.
